Dolph Lundgren has dismissed reports he has signed up to reprise his role as Russian muscle man IVAN DRAGO in Rocky 6.

Reports suggested Sylvester Stallone's character ROCKY BALBOA would visit an AIDS-stricken Drago in hospital in the upcoming movie - but Lundgren insists he is concentrating on another Russian-themed part instead.

He tells, "(Drago's) still up in the Siberian gulag I think. Actually, I'm working on another Russian-themed project, and I've been thinking back about the Ivan Drago character a little bit".
