Deadline reported that Sly Stallone and Dolph Lundgren will team up for an upcoming action drama show that could go to Netlfix and Apple. Not confirmed yet but Netflix and Apple badly wants the show.
Dolph will star in the leading role but Sly will not star at all. Sly is just going to serve as executive producer and he might even direct the show himself. The show was pitched to FOX, CBS, Netflix and Apple and it looks like they all want it.
Dolph will play a covert operative at the Department of Safety and Security at the UN. He is like a secret agent, a one man S.W.A.T. team and hostage negotiator. The show doesn’t have a title as of this moment.
Dolph Lundgren-Sylvester Stallone Action Drama Series Heats Up TV Marketplace
I’m hoping this show goes to Netflix ’cause it sounds awesome. I’m sure it’s gonna be a pretty violent show too. There will be tons of fist fighting, gun shooting and lots of explosions I’m sure.
It may not seem like it but Dolph has a lot of action movie experience. Dolph did mostly action movies in his career, anyways. Most of his movies were straight to video action films so I know Dolph plays the tough guy role very well.
I find it interesting how Sly wants to experiment with TV now. Sly wants to make the Rocky prequel TV show so that will probably come soon. Maybe this is paving the way for that?
I think Dolph is a good actor so I’m definitely gonna to be looking forward to this one. Man, I hope this show goes to Netflix exclusive and there’s a pretty good chance it will.
Sly posted this cool instagram video that quickly went viral and went up to over 2 million views. Why did it go viral? I think people just admire the fact that they see three grown men having a little fun and enjoying themselves. Obviously, Sly, Arnie and Dolph do look a little wasted and looks like they had too much to drink but it’s still funny.
I think the point that Sly wanted to make in this video is that he wants to tell you that it’s okay to have fun and enjoy yourself no matter how old you are. You maybe aging but it’s okay to be silly, goofy and just laugh for no reason at all.
They are at Arnie’s home where he has his yearly private parties where I’m sure Arnie invites his family and friends only. I’m sure his parties are full of movie stars and other types of celebs.
Anyhow, there is a pretty good reason why Arnie, Sly and Dolph are together here. I think it’s obvious that they are planning an Expendables 4. That’s gonna be Sly’s next movie after “Rambo: Last Blood”, I believe.
When it comes to this video, Sly is right, though. When you want to have fun and act like a kid, it don’t matter. I like to have fun and be goofy myself sometimes and I’m in my 40’s now. Nothing wrong with it. Life is short, live life like you mean it and learn to smile and laugh a lot. I’ve heard that people who age are way more happier than young people, anyway.
Sly Stallone did this interesting interview with Variety and I think it’s a really good read. Sly talks about a lot of things with them. Sly talks about how he was robbed by the studios of ownership of the Rocky character… the studios fully own the character rights and Sly doesn’t own any of it. Sly says he didn’t get paid much of the first three Rocky movies and says he would have gotten paid a lot more even if he did own the full rights to the character. Some of you may ask yourself, “Sylvester Stallone is a millionaire and very rich, why would he care about making more money off the character???” I’m sure some of you are thinking to yourselves that Sly is just a whiner but I don’t think so… I think Sly totally deserves to own full rights for the Rocky character since the character was all his creation. After all the hard work and successes he did out of that character, I think he totally deserves to get paid fully and fairly. The studios obviously just didn’t care. They own the full rights to Rocky when they shouldn’t. It was Sly that helped make the studios millions… they should have thought about that but all the studios cared about was the money. Think about how unfair it is that when you create something and it was successful but you got paid less for your art? Sly has every right be pissed off, in my opinion.
Sly also talks about other things in his career… he talked about how his career almost came to an end and how nobody was interested in making Rocky VI (“Rocky Balboa”). Now that MGM finally agreed to make “Rocky Balboa” which came out in 2006, look where that got Sly? “Creed I & II” happened after that and now it’s looking like that MGM studios really want to make Rocky 7 now.
Sly says in this interview that he has an idea for another Rocky movie and he says that MGM is all over it and they want the movie to get made real fast. MGM is dying for another Rocky movie after them refusing to make “Rocky Balboa” in 2006 at first.
The new Rocky movie is not going to have anything to do with the Creed spinoffs and it’s looking like it’s going to be a seventh installment of the original Rocky series. People never thought a Rocky 7 would ever happen but it looks like it’s gonna happen ’cause MGM wants it pretty badly. Sly also says there might be a Rocky prequel TV series that will be streaming service exclusive which is also interesting.

Sylvester Stallone Feels Robbed of an Ownership Stake in ‘Rocky’: ‘I Was Furious’
I’m all for another Rocky movie and I’m all for that Rocky prequel TV show too. I think a Rocky prequel is a good idea. Just imagine what a young Rocky Balboa’s life would have been like? They would need to hire a young actor to play a younger version of Rocky Balboa which that idea would be very intriguing really. They would also need a younger Paully, a younger Mickey and maybe a younger Apollo Creed too.
Anyhow, I respect Sly so much. I admire him for going through so many struggles in life and somehow managed to get back on top again. He’s a pretty strong guy too. I also respect him for his honesty too ’cause not many actors admit that he’s been in some pretty horrible films. Sly’s not afraid to admit that he’s been in some pretty bad movies. I would think it’s safe to say that Sly has gotten much better at choosing his films, though.
Today is Sly’s birthday. As some of you know, I’m a lifelong fan of the man. Looked up to him ever since I was a child ’cause I was a huge Rocky fan when I was a child. Then the Rambo movies came and I was a huge fan of those. Still am a huge Rambo fan. I’ve seen most of Sly’s movies over the years. The only movies I haven’t seen of Sly were: “Reach Me”, “Backtrace”, “Escape Plan II” and “Escape Plan: The Extractors”. I’m gonna get around to those soon but I try to see everything he’s in even if the film isn’t good.
I am definitely looking forward to “Rambo: Last Blood” and can’t freakin’ wait.
I remember in the past, though, that people hated on Sly. That was back in the days when his career was in a slump, though. People didn’t think he would turn his career around again but look at him now. He’s a box office star again.
People laughed at him when he said he wanted Rocky 6 to happen “Rocky Balboa” (2006), I’ll never forget it. People in the media criticized Sly for wanting to bring back Rocky ’cause of Sly’s age and now look at him. Sly made three more Rocky movies since Rocky V… “Rocky Balboa”, “Creed” and “Creed II”. He definitely proved the haters wrong and I admire the man so much for that. Now everyone respects Sly again and haven’t seen anything negative said about the man in a long while.
People used to make fun of me for liking so Sly so much but I’m a huge fan, I don’t care what people say. I hate most celebrities but Sly is one exception. In real life, Sly seems like a good guy. He doesn’t carry around all this fame stuff like most celebrities do, he’s humble and he’s just a normal guy like all of us.
The man works really hard to entertain us. Some may not thinks so but Sly takes his work very seriously. He always tries to make the best movie possible. Making movies isn’t about the money for him either. He makes movies ’cause he loves it and that’s what he does.
Can’t wait for “Rambo: Last Blood” as I’m definitely gonna see it as soon as it comes out!
Sly just announced on his instagram page that he just started writing the script for “Expendables 4”. Ever since the third one, there have been talks that Sly won’t be returning to the fourth film due to disagreements with the script but it turns out that Sly is definitely down for starring in the film again as confirmed by the man himself.
So will “Expendables 4” be Sly’s next film after “Rambo: Last Blood”? Probably. Sly says this is gonna be the last Expendables movie and he isn’t getting any younger so it’s a good time to get it out of the way.
As you all know, the whole goal of the Expendables franchise is to have a bunch of iconic action stars to star in one big action movie together. So far the Expendables franchise had just about every big name star you can think of but there are still a handful that Sly hasn’t had yet.
Terry Crews won’t be back due to all that sexual misconduct stuff but I’m sure we’ll see some cast members back from the first three films: Jason Statham, Dolph, Jet Li and Randy Couture will all probably be back ’cause they are the main characters. I’m sure we’ll see some additional Expendables and more villain characters.
Doing a little digging, I heard that Pierce Brosnan is gonna have a role maybe and Sly wants Jack Nicholson to be the villain.
I’m sure we’ll definitely see a lot more iconic stars in the film and I would like see:
- Tom Cruise
- Nicholas Cage
- Kurt Russell
- Dwayne Johnson
- Liam Neeson
- Al Pacino
- Vin Diesel
- Dave Bautista
- Chris Hemsworth
- Jason Momoa
Any of them would be pretty cool additions, in my opinion.
I’m a huge fan of the Expendables films. I loved them all even the third one was good. Even though the third one was PG-13, it was still entertaining as hell, in my opinion.
I used to be able to think that Rambo could possibly get killed at the end of “Rambo: Last Blood” but from the looks of things, it looks as if Rambo may live and survive at the end. Why? Simply because Sly Stallone hinted at Cannes, he would do a sixth installment of the Rambo franchise if “Last Blood” turns out to be a huge hit. If it bombs then he probably won’t do another one. I don’t think Sly would have to worry about “Last Blood” bombing ’cause the “Last Blood” trailer sparked a lot of buzz with movie fans.
This is not just a film for die-hard Rambo fanatics. Even people who only watched the first Rambo movie and not the other films have sparked interest in “Last Blood”. Even Rambo newbies got interested in the fifth film which was all very cool to see. I think this movie will be huge and it will sell well in the box office, I’m sure. I remember when the 4th Rambo film came out, it didn’t get much of a buzz and that film wasn’t much of a hit but “Last Blood” could be a hit. Back to if Rambo either lives or dies at the end of “Last Blood”, I think they will make him live for another film. This might not be the last one after all. It’s going to be interesting to see how “Last Blood” is gonna end and we’ll wait to see how when we see it in theaters in Sept.
From the looks of the trailer, it’s looking like that Rambo goes in underground caves in Mexico to find the missing girl he’s supposed to find. After Rambo finds her, he brings her back to her family and Rambo goes back to home to his ranch… but wait… it’s not over yet. Uh oh, looks like the sex traffickers and drug lords from Mexico want revenge so they go to his ranch home to try and kill him. That’s what the trailer looked like to me. The sex traffickers are trying their best to kill Rambo but you know Rambo, right? He can’t be stopped. Rambo is a one-man wrecking machine… meaning that he’s capable of killing a bunch of people all by himself and once again, he shows that in “Last Blood”.
I noticed that the trailer doesn’t show the missing girl plot yet as this is just a teaser but all the first teaser does is shows that Rambo goes to Mexico to hunt down bad guys… why did Rambo go to Mexico??? We’ll find out more in the upcoming trailers and I’m sure trailer number 2 will reveal the missing girl plot.
Ya know, after seeing the trailer now, I’m glad that the film makers stuck with the Rambo goes after sex traffickers plot. It’s an interesting idea and definitely different than the previous 4 Rambo films. I already predicted in the past that the sex traffickers plot will bring out Rambo’s violent side even more and I was right. I’ve seen Rambo pretty intense in the previous 4 but in “Last Blood” Rambo himself looks even more intense and more aggressive. That’s what makes Sly an amazing actor.
I can’t wait for the film, though. The “Last Blood” trailer was really well made but there will be more trailers coming.
Will “Last Blood” be a hit film? Like I said above, I think it will. It will not be as big as “Avengers: Endgame” but I think “Last Blood” will do well. I’m stoked for this film. You should be too.
Well I never expected the “Rambo: Last Blood” trailer to drop today. There were no prior announcements about this so the trailer just dropped out of nowhere. I guess they wanted to surprise us and they did. Sly didn’t say anything about a trailer being released this week so here it is…. the trailer for “Rambo: Last Blood”.
When Sly started releasing pics of the film on his instagram… people were getting worried that this might turn out to be a western kind of film. It looks like it is going to be more of a western but the violent action scenes are still there. The trailer gave me goosebumps and I’m stoked to see this. Can’t wait.
The movie is not done yet ’cause Sly is still filming scenes for it. Looks freakin’ awesome, though.
