Sylvester Stallone‘s Rambo is heading back to the big screen for a reboot.
The veteran action man originated the title role in the 1982 film adaptation of David Morrell’s First Blood novel, about a troubled Vietnam War veteran who struggles to adapt to civilian life.
Now bosses at Nu Image/Millennium Films are bringing the character back for a complete revamp, which will not star Stallone.
They are reportedly seeking a younger actor to take over the role in Rambo: New Blood, which will be directed by The Iceman filmmaker Ariel Vromen from a script by Brooks McLaren, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
A projected release date has yet to be set as the film is still in the early stages of development.
