A new screenplay titled “Drago” was filed with the copyright office, based on Sylvester Stallone’s popular Rocky IV character, Ivan Drago. The work was adapted from an earlier script titled, “Communist Boxing Redemption Movie” (CBRM).
That could mean that like Creed, the character could be getting his own exclusive movie. It some ways it would be surprising. In other ways it would make sense – the character is hugely popular even today.
Logline: To save his mafia boss brother, Ivan Drago must fight his way through prison and defeat the heavyweight champion of the world, Mason “The Line” Dixon.
Wow. I thought it would have been an origins story, but it looks like — if this ever gets made — that it is going to be a sidequel. It almost sounds like the plot to an arcade game. On other words… I love it!
