There's a Rambo reboot running right at you. The Hollywood Reporter says the project is called Rambo: New Blood and will not feature Sylvester Stallone, but rather a younger actor assuming the titular role. "The company is looking at Rambo as a character akin to James Bond," the magazine writes.

The well-known action series kicked off in 1982 with First Blood; the hilariously titled sequel, Rambo: First Blood Part II, hit in '85, followed by a third installment in '88. In 2008, Stallone returned to the role once again in...wait for it...keep waiting...it's gonna be worth it...Rambo.

The reboot will come from Israeli director Ariel Vroman, who helmed this year's Criminal, starring the murderers' row of Ryan Reynolds, Gal Gadot, Kevin Costner, Gary Oldman and Tommy Lee Jones. He also did the Michael Shannon serial killer flick The Iceman. First-time screenwriter Brooks McLaren is handling the script. Good luck, everyone.
