‘Drago:’ Sylvester Stallone denounces ‘Rocky’ by-product, says franchise is being ‘exploited’

Hollywood celebrity Sylvester Stallone has known as out his long-time good friend and co-star Dolph Lundgren over an upcoming spin-off to the Rocky franchise.

Stallone, 76, who performed the Philadelphia boxer Rocky Balboa within the smash-hit ‘70s Rocky films – six installments spanning over three decades – expressed his frustration after MGM announced a new spinoff film, Drago – focusing on Lundgren’s Rocky IV personality, Russian boxer Ivan Drago.

The Expendables actor became to his Instagram deal with and shared his unhappiness through writing, “94-year-old producer,” pointing at Rocky sequence manufacturer Irwin Winkler.

“ONCE AGAIN, IRWIN WINKLER, this PATHETIC 94-year-old PRODUCER and HIS [expletive] VULTURE CHILDREN, Charles and David, are once again picking clean THE BONES of another wonderful character I created without even telling me,” Stallone wrote along a screenshot of the news.

“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.”

The First Blood celebrity adopted up the publish with any other livid rant and shared a photoshopped symbol of Winkler dressed in vampire tooth having sucked blood from Rocky’s neck.

Lundgren, 64, has since addressed Stallone’s rant, announcing there have been recently “no deals in place” for a spin-off.
