    He wrote: “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.”

    The Swedish actor further talked about a press leak that stirred the rumor. “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.”

    He had portrayed the eponymous villaneous boxer in ‘Rocky 4‘ and later reprised his role in ‘Creed 2.’ It is considered to be one of the most memorable character in the whole franchise.

    The actor wrote, “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.”

    He apologized to the fans and stated that he “never wanted ROCKY characters to be exploited by these parasites.” The ‘Rambo‘ actor also took a shot at Dolph for doing the film.

    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 said.
