Lionsgate is in progress to launch an animated series that would star actor/filmmaker Sylvester Stallone. The Hollywood reporter reports that CEO Jon Feltheimer said the studio has already partnered on three internet TV shows and is now working on another that will star The Expendable 2 actor.
The studio has already sold a Canadian drama called Endgame to Hulu Plus, Orange Is The New Black to Netfix, and Bite Me! to video game entertainment network Machinima.
Stallone’s project titled Soul Survivor is an animated show that Lionsgate is seeking to partner with Reliance to make. The concept for Soul Survivor is very similar to The Expendables - it’s about a last-of-his-kind-mercernary.
Lionsgate is working to find the show an online home.
The question is, should major studios start producing online content?
The studio is also producing Stallone’sup coming sequel The Expendables 2, which stars Terry Crews, Jason Statham, Jet Li, Dolph Lundgren, Chuck Norris, Randy Couture, Liam Hemsworth, Jean-Claude Van Damme, Bruce Willis and Arnold Schwarzenegger.
The Expendables 2 hits theaters August 17, 2012.
