Ivan Drago Getting His Own Movie?

dragomovie

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!

    I think there is a story in what happens to Drago in the aftermath of his defeat. I am not sure that a rehash of Undisputed is a worthy use of the character, or Lundgren’s talent. What about he gets thrown in a gulag after disgracing the USSR, and ends up as an enforcer for the Georgian mafia. Now older, and tired, he has to find a way of earning his freedom from, or escaping the life.

    I dunno. Remember Lundgren saying in a Q&A once he’d never reprise the role again. But then again it doesn’t mean shit when actors say they will or will not do this or that… anyway let’s hope it’s true. Lundgren is still best known for playing Drago

    It’ll be interesting to see how this develops, especially with Lundgren so recently saying “I hope not” when asked if he’ll ever reprise the role of Drago.
    Anything can happen, I guess.

    This is a guy who wrote a spec script and sent out his own press release with his name all over as if it were official…
