Stallone Not Involved In “First Blood” Remake

Sylvester Stallone has squashed rumors of his involvement in the upcoming Indian remake of 1982’s “First Blood” from filmmaker Tiger Shroff.

Through a spokesperson to Deadline, Stallone says: “any involvement in Tiger Sharoff’s Rambo is not happening, under any circumstances.” Stallone reportedly has nothing against the project and says: “I wish them well on their own.”

Stallone instead has turned his focus fully to the “Creed” sequel at MGM for which he is writing the script. The plan is to get that film into production next year.

Stallone has previously hinted online that the plot might pit Michael B. Jordan’s Adonis Creed character against the son of Drago, the Russian heavyweight (Dolph Lundgren) who killed Adonis’ father Apollo Creed (Carl Weathers) in the ring in “Rocky IV”. That remains unconfirmed though.
