Rocky IV celebrates its 35th anniversary in November, and fans can expect a director’s cut of the iconic ’80s film.
Sylvester Stallone shared via social media, “For the 35th anniversary, Rocky 4 is getting a new DIRECTOR’S cut by me. So far it looks great. Soulful… Thank you, MGM for this opportunity to entertain.”
Stallone noted in a response in the comment section that one memorable aspect of the film will be omitted.
“The robot is going to the junkyard forever,” wrote Sly. “No more robot.”
Other than mourning the loss of Paulie’s robot, there’s currently no other update as to when the director’s cut of Rocky IV will be released. Of course, that’s not going to stop us from blasting Survivor’s “Burning Heart” and John Cafferty’s “Heart’s On Fire” to pump us up in the meantime.
