Dolph Lundgren responds to Sylvester Stallone's criticism of potential Rocky spin-off

Over the weekend, Stallone took to Instagram to slam Rocky producer Irwin Winkler for allegedly developing a new project about Lundgren's character, Ivan Drago. Shortly after, the Swedish actor issued a statement on social media in which he insisted that the film had not been confirmed and that he had been in touch with Stallone. Stallone launched the boxing franchise with 1976's Rocky, which he wrote and starred in. The franchise has since spawned five sequels and the Creed spin-off series.
