Sylvester Stallone is signing on to reprise his role as boxer Rocky Balboa in the sixth installment of the long-running film series, which he wrote and will direct.
The film, titled “Rocky Balboa,” will be co-produced and co-financed by Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, Columbia Pictures and Revolution Studios and will be distributed by Columbia Pictures.
In the new installment, Rocky, lonely and retired in Philadelphia, comes out of retirement, intending to fight a few low-profile local fights. He’s approached to fight a match with reigning heavyweight champ Mason “The Line” Dixon, and soon his comeback ignites a media firestorm.
Some people just don’t know when to stop and say “That’s enough!”
For God’s sake, Rocky 5 was a big mistake already, isn’t that a good enough sign that this series should end?
Plus didn’t Rocky find out he was getting brain damaged or something, making him retire? How come now he can come out of retirement and fight? Does brain damage fade away with time?
I can’t understand why some people insist on screwing up great movies with really shitty sequels.
Another bit of madness is that it seems Stallone also wants to do another Rambo movie. When he originally conceived the idea around 2002, the plot involved Rambo going into Afghanistan to battle terrorists. Very original!!
Doesn’t he realize that he’s too old for all this?!
To make things better, it’s rumoured that Arnold Schwarzenegger will act in yet another Terminator movie. As if the piece of shit, that was the third movie, wasn’t enough.
