"I was personally under the impression that my friend Sly Stallone was involved as a producer or even as an actor."
Sylvester Stallone delivered several jabs a week ago after a Rocky spinoff about Ivan Drago was announced – without the actor’s involvement. Stallone has long been in the ring with film producer Irwin Winkler, who is apparently refusing to share the film rights with the Rocky star, and this revelation didn’t exactly help. Now Drago himself is coming to the rescue, where he made it clear to fans that he had no idea Stallone wasn’t involved in the spinoff plans and claims there isn’t even a script for the project:
“Just to set the record straight regarding a possible Drago spinoff. There’s no approved script, no deals in place, no director and I was personally under the impression that my friend Sly Stallone was involved as a producer or even as an actor. There was a press leak last week which was unfortunate. In touch with Mr Balboa – just so all the fans can relax…There ya go.”
It remains to be seen if the boxing rivals will be seen on the big screen again after Creed II. What would you say about a Drago spinoff?
