Drago’s wife may return in Creed 2

Published April 6

Sylvester Stallone and Dolph Lundgren are returning to play Rocky Balboa and Ivan Drago in Creed 2, but the family reunion isn't quite complete unless Brigitte Nielsen reprises her role as Drago's wife.

And apparently that reunion is in the works, according to Movieweb.com. The website reports that Nielsen has arrived in Philadelphia to film a few scenes in the new movie. Bonus points to anyone who remembers Mrs. Drago's first name. (It was Ludmilla.) Hard to believe the Dragos' marriage survived the Cold War, but this is the world of Hollywood.

Nielsen and Stallone were briefly married in the '80, but haven't spoken since for 30 years.

Nielsen, 54, starred in Rocky 4, but also was starred in such '80s flicks as Red Sonja, Cobra and Beverly Hills Cop II. She continues to work regularly as an actress today.

Creed 2, which pits Apollo Creed's son again Drago's son, hits theaters on Nov. 21, 2018.
