Hollywood Today is reporting that the legend of how Sylvester Stallone only sold the rights for the first Rocky movie that he wrote to United Artist is not true. The legend is that he sold the rightst to them but only if he could star in the movie. Now some people are stepping forward to say that it was all made up by the executives of UA to help promote the film and that they thought they actually had hired Perry King to star in the film. I am not sure I believe this new version. Why wait 30 years to tell the truth? You can read the Hollywood Today article if you click on the title above or you can click here.
