Sylvester Stallone Developing "Rocky: The Musical"

Posted: November 21st, 2011 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Sylvester Stallone Developing "Rocky: The Musical"Submit Comment
Today marks the 35th anniversary of Sylvester Stallone's "Rocky," which earned three Oscars and spawned five sequels. And now comes word that Stallone is teaming with world champion boxing brothers Wladimir and Vitali Klitschko to make a musical version of the original film.

Speaking from Hamburg today, Stallone said that the musical will focus on Rocky's romantic side. "At the end of the day, 'Rocky' is a love story and he could never have reached the final bell without Adrian," he explained. "To see this story coming to life on a musical stage makes me proud. And it would make Rocky proud."

Broadway veteran Thomas Meehan (The Producers) will write the script to "Rocky: the Musical." Tony-award winning lyricist Lynn Ahrens and composer Stephen Flaherty will re-team for the music, which will include songs from the "Rocky" films, among them "Eye of the Tiger," "Gonna Fly Now" and "Take You Back." Tony Award nominee Alex Timbers will direct.

In addition to co-producing, the Klitchko brothers will train the lead actor, who has not yet been cast. The musical is budgeted at $15 million and will premiere in Germany in November of 2012 before hitting the road to stages worldwide.

'And it would make Rocky proud.' --- too many hits to the head Sly? You KNOW Rocky is fictitious, yes?

heh, heh, heh... I said 'tit'

And I have said it for decades that Rocky was more of a love story than a boxing story. I just never thought it would become a gay story. And if my comment offends gay readers on here... suck my d*ck, and be GLAAD, not MADD (because I'm also a mother-f*cker... probably yours!).

With songs like:

'Eye me up... Tiger Woods!'

'Gonna get AIDS now!' and, everyone's favorite...

'Take you on your back!'

So....real life professional boxers will be training him to look the part but that's only half of the character. What I want to know is will sly have the time and patience to devote to teaching this young man the art of speaking like an incoherent donkey after a 5 mile run. I think that's the burning question we should be asking. If he pulls it off? Lock for a tony
