Considering how bad Rocky V was I don’t think there was anyone out there that would have thought there was a possibility of a Rocky VI. How wrong you were.
As Sly Stallone has shamelessly tossed around script pages from the film in his self titled magazine it seems the “sly” one has managed to get the production off the ground as Production Weekly tells us this:
Slyvester Stallone, will direct and reprise his role as Rocky Balboa, in the sixth installment of the boxing franchise. Rocky 6, is scheduled to begin filming early December in Los Angeles. Lonely and at loose ends, retired boxer Rocky Balboa comes out of retirement, intending to fight a few low-profile local fights just to keep his hand in. But when he’s approached to fight a match with reigning heavyweight champ Mason “The Line” Dixon, Rocky’s modest little comeback becomes the center of a media firestorm.
I have to tell you as ridiculous as it all sounds I can’t wait to see it, as I am sure a lot of you feel the same way.
Either way the film has been added to the database, so be sure to stay tuned as I am sure more will be coming soon.
