A reboot of the classic 1980s action franchise 'Rambo' that starred Sylvester Stallone is being developed.
Brooks McLaren has been tapped to pen the script and Ariel Vromen to direct the feature.
Titled 'Rambo: New Blood', the new reboot would not see Stallone return as the action hero, like he did in the 2008 outing, but would see a younger actor inhabit the role.
The company is looking at Rambo as a character akin to James Bond.
Rambo was the lead character in a 1972 novel by David Morrell titled First Blood.
Hollywood adapted the book into the hit 1982 movie that starred Stallone in a story that despite its action trappings looked at issues facing disaffected Vietnam War vets.
