A few days ago we told you about Drago.
The new MGM project: a new spin-off of the Rocky and Creed sagas focused on Ivan Drago ( Dolph Lundgren ) and his son Viktor Drago ( Florian Munteanu ).
Today Sylvester Stallone launched a new attack on producer Irwin Winkler and his family, the previous one only two weeks ago , regarding the announcement of this new project.
“It broke my heart … I just found out … Once again, this pathetic 94-year-old producer and his stupid and useless vulture sons, Charles and David, are once again cleaning the bones of another wonderful character I’ve created. without even telling me … I apologize to the fans, I never wanted the ROCKY characters to be exploited by these parasites … By the way, I have nothing but respect for my true friend, Dolph Lundgren. “
The franchise rights are a sore point for Stallone , who paid about $ 75,000 for the script and his acting fee. Stallone and Irwin disagree about Rocky ‘s rights : according to producer Stallone he was paid fairly while according to the filmmaker at the time Irwin did not comply with the code of conduct regarding rights.
Recall that Sly is one of the producers of Creed III , the Rocky spin-off that will arrive in Italian cinemas on November 23 , simultaneously with the USA.
