Norman Jewison ran into actor Sylvester Stallone a day after Jewison attended a private pre-released screening of Rocky (1976). Jewison said: "After predicting that Rocky (1976) would be a big success, something that many were questioning at the time, I asked him [Stallone] if he'd like to read the script of my next picture [F.I.S.T. (1978)]. He took it home and called me the next day to say that he wanted to do it. All we had was a verbal agreement. But he kept it. I have to respect him for that. I understand that he was later offered more than a million dollars to do another film instead". See more »
