Sicily, Italy - Sylvester Stallone has announced he is about to start filming the next Rocky instalment, Rocky VI VI VI (Rocky 666). "This one will be a little different." Wrote Sly in a note to me, after I asked him to repeat himself 13 times, explaining I was having trouble understanding him with his speech impediment. It may be a famous speech impediment, but that still doesn't make it any easier for people to understand.
"Yeah this one's going to have a really, really mean guy in it, right. It's going to be a bit scary. I wanted to do something completely different to the previous movies."
The latest Rocky will see Rocky Balboa going head to head with one of the toughest, baddest and darkest characters in all of history: Lucifer, The Prince of Darkness.
"I've got a big meat head with HAIR!" said Sly. When I asked Sly what he meant by that he replied: "What are you stoopid or something?"
Sly then corrected me by writing down the English translation on a piece of paper: "I'm going to beat his head in YEAH!"
"Oh" I said laughing "Oh yeah, that is what you said [you mumbling FREAK]!"
When I asked Sly if he would beat Lucifer in a final show down and became the Prince of Darkness in the new Rocky, he just smiled and winked and said "Mules of Mafia have the key!"
(Or was that "you'll just have to wait and see"?)
Non comprehendo Sly!
