Sylvester Stallone Is Even More Fighting Mad Over Latest ‘Rocky’ Development

“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,” he continued.

Lundgren later posted on Instagram that he was “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.”

Final month, Stallone used a newly launched e book by David Winkler to publicly gripe that he had no possession rights within the “Rocky” universe he created and starred in, although he has mentioned he and his household are set for all times due to the flicks.

Irwin Winkler has a stranglehold on “Rocky” and its sequels, plus the “Creed” film spinoffs starring Michael B. Jordan, Stallone mentioned. (One other movie, this time directed by Jordan, is slated for a fall launch.)

“After IRWIN controlling ROCKY for over 47 years , and now CREED, , I really would like (to) have at least a little WHAT’s LEFT of my RIGHTS back, before passing it on to ONLY YOUR CHILDREN — I believe That would be a FAIR gesture from this 93 year old gentleman ?” Stallone wrote in one other now-deleted Instagram put up. “This is a painful subject That eats at my soul , because I wanted to leave something of Rocky for my children.”

The Winkler household beforehand declined to remark to HuffPost, however we’ve reached out once more.
