It seems that Greta Gerwig actually loves Sylvester Stallone, and particularly the Rocky motion pictures. Gerwig bonded together with her Ken, Ryan Gosling, over their mutual love of Stallone within the early days of prepping for the smash hit of the summer season – Barbie. There are a number of Sly references within the completed film, to the extent that it seems like he has to make a cameo within the inevitable Barbie 2.
Gerwig spent over 50% of a latest interview with Uproxx speaking about Stallone, saying that “all the things that we reference within the film is barely ever stuff that we love. And I imply, I love Sylvester Stallone.”
She continued; “And I love all these Rocky motion pictures. I like him so much. So it was a extremely early factor, truly. When Ryan Gosling and I had been texting so much, we sort of each stumbled upon our mutual love of Sly Stallone. After which we had been speaking about his look within the ‘70s and the way terrific it was. And he actually adorned himself as a person. And we thought, ‘Effectively, that’s a superb place to start out.’ I imply, there are simply form of fabulous pictures of him, significantly within the Rockys.”
Gerwig joked that the inevitable Barbie 2 is “going to start out together with her [Barbie] and Sylvester Stallone. You by no means know [if he’ll be in it] or that he’s going to direct it. I imply, he’s welcome to it. It could be an honor. It could be such an honor.”
A Barbie mash-up with Sylvester Stallone sounds extremely unlikely, however may very well be great. Contemplating the gargantuan field workplace success of Barbie, it might simply find yourself getting as many sequels as Rocky did.
