Rocky: The Musical in the works

Sylvester Stallone is set to turn his iconic 1976 boxing film Rocky into a stage musical, THR reports.

Stallone – who wrote the first Rocky and starred in all six of the series’ instalments  – will work on the musical with boxing brothers Wladimir and Vitali Klitschko.

Sly had this to say about his new endeavour, which will focus less on the boxing and more on the romance:

“At the end of the day, Rocky is a love story and he could never have reached the final bell without Adrian… To see this story coming to life on a musical stage makes me proud. And it would make Rocky proud.”

The musical will premiere November 2012 in Hamburg, Germany.

Discuss: So, ok. Intrigued?

  1. Stop the world, I’d like to get off now

  2. I’m sure a highlight will be the moving, heart-wrenching rendition of “Adrianne….Adrianne…”. Oh surely this project is not really happening.
