The Expendables have been enlisted for television duty.
Deadline reports Lionsgate TV and CBS TV Studios are developing an event series for Fox based on Sylvester Stallone’s action-movie franchise. Stallone and “The Expendables” producer Avi Lerner will executive produce the project, for which the network has already ordered a script.
Written by Greg Coolidge (“Ride Along”), Kirk Ward and Shane Brennan (NCIS: LA), the series is characterized “as a fun action drama that unites iconic TV stars as a new team of highly skilled heroes who are on a mission to stop a dangerous terrorist.” No actors have been cast or even approached, but the possibilities seem virtually endless.
Lionsgate CEO Jon Feltheimer first raised the possibility of TV projects based on “The Expendables” and “RED” in 2012.
