Sylvester Stallone not happy about Ivan Drago spin-off movie
Sylvester Stallone has gone in hard on Rocky producer Irwin Winkler after being left out of plans for an Ivan Drago spin-off movie.
According to a Mirror report, the Hollywood actor, 76, was the star of the hit boxing franchise, but is far from happy at one of the OG producers’ decision to create a new film surrounding the origins of one of its hit characters.
It’s the second time Sly has taken aim at Irwin, who helped make the franchise a huge success.
The new movie will look back at Dolph Lundgren’s Ivan Drago character’s origins and Sly also fired shots at his former pal for not informing him of the new script, as well as Irwin’s ‘moronic vulture children’.
In the explosive Instagram rant, Sly said: “Another Heartbreaker… Just found this out…ONCE AGAIN , IRWIN WINKLER , this PATHETIC 94 year old PRODUCER and HIS MORONIC VULTURE CHILDREN, Charles And David, are once again picking clean THE BONES of another wonderful character I created without even telling me.
“I APOLOGIZE to the FANS , I never wanted ROCKY characters to be exploited by these parasites…”
He carried on to criticise Dolph, saying: “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.”
