Sly Stallone is earning Oscar buzz for reprising his role as Rocky Balboa in Creed, so the timing seems right for him to bring another high-testosterone '80s hero out of the attic: Deadline reports that Stallone and Fox are developing a Rambo TV show, which the actor would executive-produce, and could potentially star in. (Deadline's sources are divided on that last part.) Called Rambo: New Blood, the project would center on Vietnam vet turned Afghan freedom fighter turned missionary rescuer John Rambo and his son J.R. (wait, is his name John Rambo Rambo Junior?), an ex–Navy S.E.A.L. Unlike the previous attempt to tell the story of the son of Rambo, this series will presumably not be produced by a bunch of adorable British children.
