“I also know there’s gonna be a lot of criticism. Even my wife says, ‘Don’t do it. You’re embarrassing the kids’. But I told her, ‘If I don’t try I’ll be a really unhappy man.'”
Stallone is also writing a script for Rambo V, a follow-up to 2008’s Rambo, which earned $155 million worldwide.
“I know it’s ludicrous and everyone would laugh. I would laugh about it,” Stallone went on to say. “But I also know that I’d be successful if I can make this a film about becoming older, not about boxing but about myself.”
The sixth instalment in the Rocky franchise, Rocky Balboa, also made $155 million.
Stallone’s films are usually viable due to their name recognition and smaller budgets. Balboa was made on a $24 million budget.
