Stallone: 'Time Is Right To Bring Back My Hero Roles'
Hollywood actor Sylvester Stallone likens the world in 2006 to the dark Cold War days that gave him his biggest film successes.
The star will reprise his role as iconic boxer Rocky in ROCKY BALBOA next year (07), with a fourth Rambo movie also in the pipeline.
But despite the break of nearly twenty years from the big screen, Stallone believes his hard man heroic roles are as relevant as they were at the height of their popularity in 1970s and 1980s thanks to the world's "current climate".
He says, "Maybe these movies wouldn't have been as interesting five years ago, but look what's happened in the world in that time.
"It's a whole different climate now."
