Sylvester Stallone breaks up heated fight on the set of “Creed” and of course, successful in stopping it…

A huge fight broke out between actor/pro boxer Tony Bellew who plays the character, Pretty Ricky and another actor — when things got really heated, Sly of course had to jump in. A source said that Sly started screaming and ordering it to stop. Of course, they did.

More on the story here:

So Sly the peacemaker. No surprise there. That’s what you get when you have a real life pro boxer on a movie set, you’ll have to deal with a lot of egos. They were quick at stopping the fight when Sly jumped in ’cause why? Well, he’s Sylvester Stallone for one. A legend. Plus, Sly is a huge guy, muscular and ripped. I’m sure the two guys shut their mouths real fast when Sly showed up. You don’t mess with Sly.

Something tells me Sly have done this before on movie sets… stopping fights so this is nothing new with him, I’m sure.

That Rocky spin-off, “Creed” release it’s synopsis…

Check it out, that Rocky spin-off film, “Creed” just released it’s synopsis, it’s here:

Adonis Johnson (Jordan) never knew his famous father, world heavyweight champion Apollo Creed, who died before he was born. Still, there’s no denying that boxing is in his blood, so Adonis heads to Philadelphia, the site of Apollo Creed’s legendary match with a tough upstart named Rocky Balboa.

Once in the City of Brotherly Love, Adonis tracks Rocky (Stallone) down and asks him to be his trainer. Despite his insistence that he is out of the fight game for good, Rocky sees in Adonis the strength and determination he had known in Apollo—the fierce rival who became his closest friend. Agreeing to take him on, Rocky trains the young fighter, even as the former champ is battling an opponent more deadly than any he faced in the ring.

With Rocky in his corner, it isn’t long before Adonis gets his own shot at the title…but can he develop not only the drive but also the heart of a true fighter, in time to get into the ring?

Is Rocky gonna get killed off in this one? I believe this is the final time that Sly is gonna be playing the legendary character we all love. While it maybe sad that Rocky could get killed off, it would make a very dramatic and powerful scene. I can see Sly pulling off some really good acting chops during Rocky’s death.

I remember nobody wanted Mickey, Apollo and Adrian to die but those deaths made the movies more intense. Well, in the film “Rocky Balboa” never showed Adrian’s death which made it even more interesting. The previous Rocky film, “Rocky Balboa” (Rocky VI) got mixed reviews but I still thought it was a great Rocky film… I just wish Sly didn’t direct it and he should have brought John G. Avildsen back at the helm.

I’m looking forward to the film “Creed” but keep in mind, Rocky being a trainer/mentor of somebody is nothing new ’cause that’s what Rocky did in “Rocky V”. Rocky was Tommy Gunn’s manager. “Rocky V” didn’t get great reviews either but I still liked the film for what it is.

I’m sure in the film “Creed” Sly will still kill it as Rocky. Even though this is a spin-off, technically this is Rocky 7… kind of funny ’cause Sly said he would never play Rocky again after “Rocky Balboa”. Wonder what made him change his mind?

Look like Sly Stallone is giving us Rocky one more time…

It may not be “Rocky 7” but close enough!!! I guess you can call this film a bit of a “spin-off” from the Rocky franchise. Sly’s next big screen movie will be “Creed” which is going to be about Apollo Creed’s son aspiring to be a boxer like his father so he can meet Rocky to possibly help him train or give him advice.

It’s gonna be great to see Sly reprise his role as Rocky for one more round. As long as Sly is still playing Rocky in this film, I’ll go see it.

I’m looking forward to seeing a trailer of this film soon.

Thought: Rocky 7??? I’d say bring it on Sly!!!

Rumours hit the internet that Sylvester Stallone is working on another Rocky, the 7th installment to continue from where it left off from, “Rocky Balboa”.

Of course, the public is shitting on it, accusing Sly that he’s too old to do another Rocky, the public don’t want another one, blah blah blah.

The rumours probably isn’t true, but if it is. Why not? The more Rocky, the better. “Rocky Balboa” was a really good movie, but it could have been made much better.

What plot would Sly have for “Rocky 7”? Would Sly train another boxer? No, that would be a repeat of Rocky V, since Rocky was a retired boxer training another fighter, that Tommy Gunn guy.

What if Rocky’s son, Robert Balboa Jr. dreams of becoming a boxer and Rocky tries to get his son a boxing career? Sounds like a good enough plot to me.

There are many ideas that could make another Rocky movie work and that people would like. Remember, back when Sly announced he was doing Rocky 6, everybody hated that idea too, but when the movie actually came out and it became, “Rocky Balboa”, Sly is all of a sudden respected by movie fans.

So don’t immediately assume that, “Rocky 7” would suck if Sly really did decide to work on it. This is called creative writing. Sly is always coming up with ideas.

If Sly is still doing action movies doing his own stunts in the “Expendables” and he will probably do his own stunts in “Rambo 5”, I don’t see why he can’t be physical for another Rocky. Why not?

I’d say do another one. I’m sure Sly will speak out on this soon, to say whether this news is true or not. Probably not, but it would be cool.

Report: Antonio Tarver suing film makers of “Rocky Balboa” for not getting payed…

Antonio Tarver who is suing the film makers of Stallone’s final Rocky movie, “Rocky Balboa”, is claiming that he wasn’t payed for playing the role of Mason “The Line” Dixon. Sylvester Stallone wrote the script and directed the film, but TMZ didn’t really clarify who Tarver is suing. The film makers or Stallone himself? I’m sure it isn’t Stallone being sued since TMZ didn’t bring up his name, so it must be the film makers aka the studio. Stallone is not responsible for paying the actors since he is just a writer, director. It’s the studios responsibility for payments.
