As it seems, Sylvester Stallone is not entirely on board with the idea of another Rocky spinoff in the working. The producers of Parasite were surprised when they saw Sylvester displeased.
Rocky has always been an iconic franchise. I grew up watching these movies and they’re quite close to me. Not just me, every adult of today has enjoyed the Rocky movies at least once in their childhood.
At the same time, these types of franchises are at a weak edge. Slight misconduct and all that decades worth of hard work go down the drain. Sylvester Stallone feels the same and goes against the idea of the new spinoff being produced.
Sylvester has played this iconic role for 6 installments. He made that role his own. There was even a time when people started referring to him as Rocky Balboa instead of his real name. Although now, Sylvester has called out his good friend and co-actor Dolph Lundgren. Even the name of the new installment will be “Drago”.
Sylvester Didn’t Hold Back
Sylvester let his feelings regarding the spinoff out after MGM announced Drago. He imminently turned to his social media handles and displayed his rage there. He even looked distraught.
“ONCE AGAIN, IRWIN WINKLER, this PATHETIC 94-year-old PRODUCER and HIS (Explicit) VULTURE CHILDREN, Charles and David, are once again picking clean THE BONES of another wonderful character I created without even telling me,” said Sylvester disappointedly.
“I APOLOGIZE [sic] to the FANS, I never wanted ROCKY characters to be exploited by these parasites …By the way, I once had nothing but respect for Dolph but he NEVER told me about what was going on behind my back with the character I created for him!!! REAL FRIENDS are more precious than gold.” He further mentioned.
All that didn’t stop our Rambo at all. He even posted a picture of Irwin Winkler wearing vampire teeth, sucking off blood from Rocky’s neck. That’s a lot of damage.
Dolph Lundgren responded back to his dearest friends’ banter as there were “no deals in place” for another spinoff.
