Somewhat of a follow-up to the previous question.
After Rocky Balboa defeated Russian champion Ivan Drago (Dolph Lundgren) in Rocky IV, the makers of the franchise decided that there were no more opponents left on earth who were capable of competing with Rocky, and hence planned a film on those lines.
However, when Sylvester Stallone was told of the film, he thought it was too outlandish, and declined to star in the film. It instead went to another action hero and ended up giving a huge boost to that actor’s career.
All you have to do is identify the film. Interestingly, and without knowing I would ask this question here, I seem to have left a nod to this film in my previous question. So that’s another hint to make things easier.
Happy quizzing, and have a nice life, folks!
Five replies, and four are spot on! The filmmakers had decided that since every option on earth had been exhausted, they would have Stallone fight an alien, but he refused. So they approached a certain Arnold Schwarzenegger, and he agreed to star in the film called Predator. The rest, as they say, is history!
