Just one day after the news that Sylvester Stallone may reprise his classic John Rambo role for a Rambo TV series, the actor's rep revealed he is not coming back to star. Here's what the actor's press representative had to say in a statement.
"While a television series based on the Rambo property is in development with Entertainment One and Nu Image, contrary to reports, Sylvester Stallone will certainly not reprise his role as the iconic John Rambo for the small screen."
The rep went on to say that the actor may still be involved with the series in a creative capacity, but a deal hasn't been finalized yet.
Sylvester Stallone portrayed John Rambo in First Blood (1982), Rambo: First Blood Part II (1985), Rambo III (1988) and Rambo (2008). Now that Sly is not strapping on the headband once again, who would you like to see play John Rambo in the upcoming TV series?
