Sylvester Stallone has managed to seize another role as a mercenary: he is set to star in an animated web series called "Soul Survivor." For now, the only information on the project is that the protagonist -- played by Stallone -- is a “last-of-his kind mercenary”, whatever that means.

Behind the show is Lionsgate, whose CEO John Feltheimer announced the Stallone-starring animation show during a panel at the Milken Institute Global Conference. Lionsgate have already sold other three web series, two of them to Hulu Plus, including "Orange Is the New Black" from "Weeds" creator Jenji Kohan. However, "Soul Survivor" is yet to find online distribution, though undoubtedly, there are a handful of options of choose, and certainly, the name brand of Stallone will be attractive to those looking to lock in a certain demographic for advertising.

Stallone is currently has "The Expendables 2" headed to theaters this summer, and continues to plan to bring another mercenary -- Rambo  -- back one last time. During CinemaCon, he told MTV that his most famous character should “go out in a blaze of glory in a heroic fashion." This is certainly fits in line with previous rumors that he was planning to kill off the character altogether, so we'll see how it all plays out. [THR]
