Dolph Lundgren has responded after Sylvester Stallone slammed him for attaching himself to potential ‘Rocky’ spin-off ‘Drago’.
Lundgren took to Instagram to clarify the details of the spinoff after being called out. He revealed that there was no “approved script” for the project or a director.
“Just to set the record straight regarding a possible Drago spinoff,” Lundgren captioned a photo of himself and Stallone on Instagram. “There’s no approved script, no deals in place, no director and I personally felt like my friend Sly Stallone was involved as a producer or even as an actor.”
“There was a leak in the press last week which is unfortunate. In touch with Mr. Balboa – just so all the fans can relax… There you go.”

Stallone criticized Irwin Winkler and his sons, Charles and David, for “cleaning the bones” of the “Rocky” Drago character for the potential series.
“ONCE AGAIN IRWIN WINKLER, this 94 year old PATHETIC PRODUCER and HIS MORONS VULTURE CHILDREN, Charles and David, are once again selecting THE BONES of another wonderful character I created without even telling me…” he wrote on Instagram.
“I apologize to the FANS, I never meant for ROCKY characters to be taken advantage of by these pests…” Stallone added, before sniping at Lundgren.

“By the way, I think there’s talk of doing a full Drago spin-off with MGM, so you might get more,” Lundgren told the outlet.
Stallone also slammed franchise producer “Rocky” Winkler for hiding income from spin-off films from him.
