2 Aug – Dolph Lundgren recently assured that all is well between him and Sylvester Stallone, following the latter's recent frustration with news of a "Drago" movie.
On 31 July, the actor, who played Rocky Balboa's rival in "Rocky IV", recently took to social media to address the issue, sharing a photo of him with Stallone.
"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," he posted.
"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."
Stallone, who previously lashed out at producer Irwin Winkler for "picking clean the bones" of another character that Stallone created without telling him, stated in the same post that he has no issue with Lundgren, only to edit the post again soon after, saying that Lundgren never told him what was going on behind his back.
He later shared another post, doubling down on his statement, saying, "After IRWIN WINKLER And FAMILY SUCK ROCKY DRY! Presumed to be the most hated, untalented, decrepit, producer in Hollywood and his cowardly children have found their next meal... Drago? Throughout history so many artists in every industry, recording, painting, writing, you name it have been destroyed by these blood suckers Who have destroyed so many families, lining their pockets with other people work..."
The post came after it was reported that a movie about Ivan Drago is set to be penned by scribe Robert Lawton, which will be a spinoff of "Creed", which itself is a spinoff of "Rocky".
