SHORT TAKES : Stallone’s Rocky to Hang ‘em Up

From Times Staff and Wire Service Reports

Sylvester Stallone says this summer’s “Rocky V” will be the last in the series because there is nothing more to say about the not-so-talkative palooka.

“I have no more to say about the character, which is my alter ego, I can’t deny that,” Stallone said Tuesday.

So what’s ahead for Stallone?

“Right now,” he said, “we’re doing something ecological, which is the theme of the 1990s. Then I’d like to do a comedy.”


The movie’s premiere is tentatively set for Nov. 15.
