‘UPDATE:’ Sylvester Stallone Not Making ‘Rocky 7’

It seems the interview was misconstrued and the actor was talking about ‘Rocky Balboa’.

Sylvester Stallone to Make Rocky 7? According to Teen Say, Sylvester Stallone is planning on getting back in the ring with Rocky 7 once he finishes making Rambo V: A Savage Hunt.

The actor had this to say about the prospects of another Rocky film:

"I know I'll probably make a fool of myself if I make another 'Rocky' film after turning 60. 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.'

Despite all this, Stallone seems to have a lighthearted mindset about Rocky 7:

"I know it's ludicrous and everyone would laugh. I would laugh about it. 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."

UPDATE: 10/26/09 3:30 PM PSTCHUD is now reporting that the Stallone's responses were actually referring to Rocky Balboa and not a new film.

Thanks to some European Chewers on our message board, we have learned that the translations making the web right now are wrong. It seems as though in the interview Stallone is talking in the past tense about Rocky Balboa and not a Rocky 7. Don't trust Babelfish for your translations, I guess.
