Sylvester Stallone just confirmed that director Bruce Malmuth’s Nighthawks with Billy Dee Williams and the late Rutger Hauer is getting a modern reboot as a streaming series.
He revealed this info via an Instagram Q&A (around 13:30 in the video below), saying: “I love [Nighthawks]. By the way: we’re remaking that as a streaming series, also at Universal. I’m really proud that all these things are coming back around because they’re holding up.”
Check out the video below.
It centers on an international terrorist (Rutger Hauer in his first American role) fresh from mounting a devastating bomb attack in London, who arrives in New York and remains intent upon wreaking further bloody havoc. His preparation is clinical and thorough but he overlooks one thing – the grit and steely determination of one New York cop (Sylvester Stallone).
Nighthawks is directed by Bruce Malmuth and stars Sylvester Stallone, Billy Dee Williams, Lindsay Wagner, Persis Khambatta, Nigel Davenport, and Rutger Hauer. Its score was composed by Keith Emerson. Universal Pictures unleashed it back on April 10, 1981.
