How dare that review call M. Emmett Walsh "supremely slobbish!!!"

That's stuntman Richard Hammat next to Dolph who apparently doubled Lundgren in some shots. I thought Dolph was never doubled in that one...

The HOLLYWOOD BULLDOGS documentary is to be released on Blu-ray this November (but regarding RS and Dolph, there's only a brief mention from Hammat in the doc).

Greg Pro:
Hi Jeremie, it was so long ago, it's hard to remember. I do recall this was painted before Dolph signed on. It was the script cover to show him some inspiration. He apparently liked it so much, they decided to use it for the movie poster. It was great because back then I got paid every time they published it. It was even used for the video tape cover.

I don't think I saved any preliminary sketches. This was really a fast job to get something painted. I didn't like the art at all. It was so bad I destroyed the original art.

Sad to hear the original has been destroyed.
