Now, Stallone has revealed the title for the new film — Rambo: Last Blood.

Theatre Review: Rocky

Rocky Broadway

Rocky
Written by Sylvester Stallone and Thomas Meehan
Directed by Alex Timbers
Music by Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty
Starring Andy Karl, Margo Seibert, Terence Archie, Dakin Matthews, Danny Mastrogiorgio
Winter Garden Theatre
The Shubert Organization
Premiered March 13, 2014

A southpaw underdog wants to make it as a big time fighter, but he just can’t catch a break. He gets kicked out of his locker at the local gym, run by Mickey. He’s just a little too soft for his job as a loan shark’s muscle (won’t break bones). And the girl he’s crushing on won’t give him the time of day. That is, until Apollo Creed unexpectedly needs a new opponent when his original opponent for the world heavyweight title drops out because of an injury.

Ever the businessman, he wants to fight one of Philly’s own, a nobody that gets a shot at the title. He chooses “The Italian Stallion,” Rocky Balboa. Rocky wins over shy pet shop girl Adrian with a little help from her brother Paulie, gains Mickey as a trainer, has a training montage complete with running up those famous steps, and wows everyone in the climactic fight.

Another Rocky movie is on the way, but this one will not be so much of a sequel as it will be a spinoff. The movie will be titled Creed, and it will follow the grandson of original Rocky Balboa rival and eventual best friend Apollo Creed, who was played by Carl Weathers.

MGM has grabbed Fruitvale Station director Ryan Coogler for the spinoff, and is currently in talks with that film’s star, Michael B. Jordan, to play Creed’s grandson.

Sylvester Stallone Turning ‘Rocky’ Into a Musical

Rocky

Sylvester Stallone was just a little-known actor from New York City taking small parts in minor films and headlining porno flicks when Rocky, the boxing drama he wrote and starred in, was released in late 1976. The movie went on to gross over $200 million worldwide, was nominated for ten Academy Awards, and went home with three. Although Stallone didn’t receive any awards recognition for his acting or writing, the movie made him a star and, after more than three decades, remains a global box office attraction. Rocky also became one of the biggest film franchises in the world, spawning five sequels of varying quality and success and influencing generations of moviegoers, future filmmakers, and aspiring boxers. Now, it’s becoming a musical.
