Sylvester Stallone is Trying To Bring COBRA Back as a TV Series
I’m sure many of you remember Sylvester Stallone’s 1986 action film Cobra. Stallone played an LAPD officer who finds himself at the center of a spate of murders carried out by a secret society called New Order: killers who select "weak" members of society for extermination. After he takes a witness to one of the murders into protective custody, they end up fighting for their lives.
During a press junket at the Cannes Film Festival, Stallone was asked by an audience member about the film and the actor reflected on it, saying:
“That (conceit) was what if Bruce Springsteen had a gun? That was rock n’ roll meets drama. That should have been another franchise because that character was so cool. And I blew it. My personal life got in the way.”
Then Stallone revealed that he is trying to bring Cobra back in the form of a series for a streaming service!
“But we’re trying to bring it back as a streaming TV series. Bring out the zombie squad. I’m long gone, but the idea is really good.”
I don’t know about you, but I’d be totally down for that. By rebooting the story as a series, the creative team will be able to dive a lot deeper into the the characters and story. Also, thanks to the streaming services like Netflix and Hulu, they can get deep into the crazy action and bloody violence.
