“The way I imagine it, after the fight, he’s riding home in a cab, with the roar of the people chanting ‘Rocky!’ still in his ears. And he just drops over dead. In other words, he has achieved everything possible and he dies when he’s on top. I don’t think people want to see Rocky when he’s 80.”
Sylvester Stallone became a star playing Rocky Balboa, but did you know that United Artists wanted to buy Stallone’s script for Rocky and cast another actor in the title role? Before they finally agreed to let Stallone have the part, they tried to cast actors like Robert Redford, Burt Reynolds, and James Caan. That’s just one of the facts crammed into the latest episode of You Think You Know Movies, which goes the distance on the original 1976 classic, Rocky.
When I heard there was going to be a Rocky 6 'Rocky Balboa' I joked, The theme song would be from the Beach Boys, "round round, get around, can't get around". Now they're talking about another Sylvester Stallone saga continuation. Rambo 5 is reportedly in the writing stages and would be the final installment of Rambo.
