MOSCOW, July 18 – RIA Novosti. Sylvester Stallone has requested that at least some of the rights to the Rocky franchise be returned to him. He wrote about it on social networks and addressed the post to producer Irwin Winkler.
Stallone wrote the scripts for all five films about the famous boxer, and also played a major role in the tapes.
“Irvin, after controlling Rocky for 47 years and now Creed, I want to reclaim at least some of my rights before I give them to his children. I believe this is the right thing to do for the 93-year-old gentleman,” Stallone wrote.
He noted that this was a “painful subject” and that he wanted to leave something from Rocky to his children.
At one time, Stallone was paid $75,000 and ten percent of the box office for the script and the role, which brought him about $2.5 million. informs deadline.
