LAST BOUT

The Gulf Today - Time Out - - GRAPEVINE -

After more than four decades and eight movies, ac­tor SYLVESTER STAL­LONE says he is in­ally hang­ing up his Rocky gloves.

In a video he shared on In­sta­gram re­cently, the 72-year-old ac­tor said he was ready to walk away from play­ing the iconic char­ac­ter, re­fer­ring to his lat­est ap­pear­ance in the re­cently re­leased “Creed II” as his “last rodeo.” “I thought Rocky was over in 2006 and I was very happy with that,” he said in the video.

“And then all of a sud­den this young man pre­sented him­self and the whole story changed,” he added, point­ing to his “Creed” co-star Michael B. Jor­dan.

“It went on to a new gen­er­a­tion, new prob­lems, new ad­ven­tures.”

The “Creed” ilms are a con­tin­u­a­tion of the Rocky story.
