Sylvester Stallone, Wladimir and Vitali Klitschko to Produce ‘Rocky’ Musical

Sylvester Stallone, better or worse, is always going to be associated with Rocky Balboa more than any other movie character. After five sequels and a handful of video games, as well as enough merchandise to make the members of KISS blush in comparison, Rocky is now going to end up as a stage musical per The Hollywood Reporter. He’ll be joined by heavyweight boxing kingpins Wladimir and Vitali Klitschko.

The Klitchko brothers will train the lead actor, yet to be announced, for the German production budgeted at $15 million. If succesful the show will be transplanted stateside.

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