The actor, who played Rocky Balboa, became an acclaimed star thanks to this saga of films, which has remained in Hollywood history.

But it is not the only production focused on the legendary boxer, since there is also Creed I and II, starring Michael B. Jordan and with Stallone as his coach.

Now, a new production is on the way. It is about Drago, focused on Ivan (Dolph Lundgren), the Russian boxer who entered the ring against Rocky Balboa in Rocky IV, and his son Viktor Drago (Florian Munteanu), who fought against Adonis Creed in Creed II.

This film that is within the Rocky saga will be the first in which Stallone does not appear. In this regard, the interpreter criticized the tape; Previously, a month ago, he had exploded against the director, screenwriter and producer Irwin Winkler, for the limited participation he had throughout this time.

“After Irwin controlled Rocky for over 47 years, and now Creed, I’d really like to get back at least a little bit of what’s left of my rights, before passing them down to just his children,” he had mentioned at the time.

Now, Stallone remarked: “Another heartbreaking story… I just found this out… Once again, Irwin Winkler, this pathetic 94-year-old producer, and the vulture morons of his sons, Charles and David, once again more are cleaning the bones of another wonderful character that I created myself without even telling me… I apologize to the fans, I never wanted Rocky’s characters to be exploited by these parasites.”

“By the way, in his day I only had respect for Dolph, but he never talked to me about what was going on behind my back with the character I created for him. True friends are more precious than gold,” he added in reference to his relationship with Lundgren.

Some time later, he deleted the publication on his official Instagram account, but his comments caused a stir on social networks and in the press in general.

In this context, the response from Lundgren was immediate: “Just to clarify things regarding a possible spin-off of Drago: there is no approved script, no closed agreements, no director,” he said.

“Personally, I was under the impression that my friend Sly Stallone was involved as a producer or even an actor. There was a pretty unfortunate press leak last week. I’m in touch with Balboa, so fans can rest easy.” Swedish.
