American actor Sylvester Stallone said on Wednesday that he would no longer take on the role of Rocky Balboa, believing it was time to release the new generation that embodies the new saga of Adoni Johnson.
"Today, when I retire and my story is told, the new world opens up to the public with this generation," says the actor in a report posted on Instagram, which was apparently recorded in the movie "Creed II", which was released on November 21 in the United States.
Since 1976, Sylvester Stallone has played eight roles that made him famous and earned several Oscar nominations.
"Even if it damages my heart, everything is over," he wrote to Instagram. "Rocky will never die because he lives for you," he tells the fans of the saga.
"I have a lot of privileges so I can create and play this important character," said 72-year-old comedian, screenwriter, director and producer.
"I think Rocky was finished in 2006, and it filled me perfectly," he said in a video shoot at night, which looks like an idle crew in the presence of Creed II.
"And suddenly this young man appeared, and the whole story has changed," he continues, supposedly pointing to the actor Michael B. Jordan who took part in the video, even if he stays in the field.
In "Creed – Rocky Balboa Legacy" and "Creed II", the new actor Adonis Johnson, the boxing circle of Apollo Creed's son, best friend Rocky Balboa died with the bouts of Soviet Ivan Drago fighting upstairs.
After the initial refusal Stallone finally accepted the new director's proposal, Ryan Coogler, who wanted to revive a lot in the current version.
Released in 2015, Creed, in which Rocky prepares Adony for a professional fight, hits the world-wide cassette office at Mojo Box Office with a revenue of $ 173 million.
The eighth part of the Saga, Creed II, is likely to have done at least as much as last weekend to prove to be the best start ever seen in the United States in Rocky.
