Although they were last on screen together in the likes of 'Creed II', 'The Expendables' and, of course, 'Rocky IV', Dolph Lundgrean and Sylvester Stallone haven't really bothered TV with their action-packed antics - until now, that is.
According to trade bible Deadline, Stallone and Lundgren are apparently kicking off a bidding war between the major TV studios and the streaming services for a new TV project that will see Stallone direct and possibly star in, whilst Lundgren will take the lead.
The series, which doesn't have a title yet, sees Lundgren as "as a covert operative at the Department of Safety and Security at the UN", and is described as "the UN’s secret special agent, a one-man S.W.A.T. team and hostage negotiator." Sure, that makes... sense? The UN has secret special agents? Sure, OK.
Stallone is obviously warming to television, having recently had a small cameo in drama series 'This Is Us', and turned up in 'Las Vegas' in a guest starring role. Lundgren, meanwhile, had a recurring role on The CW's 'Arrow' as Konstantin Kovar, also known as Red Star. The series showrunner will be Ken Sanzel, who previously worked on the likes of 'Blue Bloods', 'Numb3rs' and 'Reef Break'.
While no air date has been confirmed and it's all still early days yet, it's kind of crazy to think Sylvester Stallone and Dolph Lundgren are making the plunge into television at this stage in their career.
Just goes to show you can teach old dogs new tricks. That's got to be the tagline for this series, as well. Has to be.
