At the time of publication, Sylvester and Frank Stallone have worked together nine times in cinemas. Their first came in 1976’s ‘Rocky’, which became so successful that they shared the screen across the board in ‘Rocky II’, ‘Rocky III’ – which could have involved the Pope – and ‘Rocky Balboa’. Outside of boxing classics, the brothers collaborated on Paradise Alley, Staying Alive, Get Carter and The Good Life. Their last fictional team came together in 2014’s Reach Me, but considering both Frank and Sly are still going strong as actors, it stands to reason that they’ll be working together again sooner rather than later.
In addition to their feature films, the Stallones have also worked on a handful of documentaries. Most notably, they both contributed to Stallone: Frank, That Is, out in 2021 to tell the story of Frank’s life, film and music career, and more. In an interview with Vegas Film Critic to promote the film, Frank even opened up about his relationship with his brother, which showed how deep their bond runs. “If he needs me or I need him, everything else is lost,” he said. No matter what battle or disagreement they’re struggling with, their brotherly bond always takes precedence.
Family is clearly the Stallones’ number one priority, so don’t expect Frank and Sylvester to end their cinematic collaboration any time soon.
