"Today, I will retreat and my story has been told, a new world opens to the audience with this generationExplains the actor in a message posted on Instagram, apparently recorded under the movie of "Creed II", released November 21 in the United States.
Since 1976, Sylvester Stallone has played eight roles that made him famous and earned more Oscar nominations.
"Even if it ruins my heart, everything has an endHe wrote on Instagram. "Rocky will never die because he lives in you", He tells the story of the fans.
"It has been a great privilege for me to be able to create and play this important characterSaid the actor, scriptwriter, director and producer, now 72 years old.
"I thought Rocky was finished in 2006 and it filled me perfectly"He says in this video at night on what looks like a wasteland, in the presence of the creed II team.
"And suddenly this young man appeared and the whole story changed"He continues, probably pointing to actor Michael B. Jordan, present during the shooting of the video, even though it is out of the box.
In "Creed – The Legacy of Rocky Balboa" and "Creed II", young actor Adonis Johnson, son of boxer Apollo Creed, plays best friend of Rocky Balboa who died during the strokes of Soviet Ivan Drago in a battle at the top.
After an initial rejection, Stallone finally accepted the proposal of the young director Ryan Coogler, who wanted to revive the saga in a much more current version.
Released in 2015, "Creed", where Rocky prepares Adonis for a professional match, was a worldwide success of $ 173 million in revenue, according to box office Mojo Box Office.
The eighth part of the saga, "Creed II", seems to make at least as much, having realized last weekend, the best start ever in the United States for a movie including Rocky.
