This is something Sylvester Stallone posted on Instagram the other day.
It's a pad filled with notes for the sequel to Creed. The actor/director wrote that it consists of 439 handwritten pages that would translate into around about 120 typed pages.
He appears to be working on Creed II, but that's not all.
Look at one of the hashtags on the image (if you can't see it properly, click on the image). Notice the '#drago'?
I guess he's hinting that Dolph Lundgren could be reprising his Rocky IV role as Ivan Drago in this movie. It would work considering Drago is the boxer that killed the Apollo Creed in Rocky IV. The current franchise - Creed - is based on Apollo's son, Adonis, pursuing a career in boxing.
Would be interesting to see if the script has Ivan Drago's son as the main villain.
I'm getting ahead of myself, though. The movie is evidently in the early planning stages and won't be with us for years.
My favourite rock album turned thirty years old yesterday. I wish I had known before publishing yesterday's post, because I would have dedicated the post to it.
The album is Guns 'N Roses' Appetite For Destruction.
I first must have came across it in 1988. This would have been the second summer I spent with my relatives on an American air force base in Germany. I would sleep on the floor of my cousin's bedroom and he would play the album before bed.
It took me a few nights, but - by the end of the holiday - I loved having it play as I lay there in that room.
Even as I type this now, I wish I could relive those visits. I loved the two summers I spent over there. Whenever I listen to the album, memories of the final visit to Germany flood back.
I didn't immediately buy the cassette when I returned home. I remember buying it with my Christmas money - or gift vouchers - in late '88 or the New Year of '89. I still have the cassette and I even upgraded to a CD back when I had my first CD player.
It's just gone midnight as I'm writing this. As soon as I finish, I'm going to listen to the album as I try and get myself to sleep.
I'm currently on the iPhone's WIFI personal hotspot typing this post up because I won't be able to come online properly until my ISP has sent out a new modem/router.
Typically, it chose one of the worst weeks of the year to go down. In fact, it picked a day when there was a lot of wrestling news what with Shane McMahon being a passenger on a helicopter that had to make a crash landing yesterday and also the talk that Brock Lesnar is eyeing a return to the UFC.
I had better get off this hotspot. Back tomorrow... I hope.
