After appearing in six movies, all written by and starring Stallone, Rocky Balboa is set to make a seventh film appearance in the latest spin-off movie, 'Creed'.
Sylvester Stallone has confirmed that he plans to reprise his iconic character, ROCKY BALBOA, for the spin-off film, 'Creed'. The movie focuses on the grandson of Rocky's famous friend and opponent, Apollo Creed, with 67-year-old Stallone revealing that he will play the courageous boxer as he trains and mentors the young Creed, played by Michael B. Jordan. This is not, however, 'Rocky VII', Stallone reveals.
Stallone, who both wrote and starred in all the six 'Rocky' movies, won three Academy Awards for the first movie. In an interview with Jonathan Ross on 11th January 2014's 'An Evening with Sylvester Stallone' at the London Palladium, he revealed: ''I'm supposed to be doing a film with Ryan Coogler, who did 'Fruitvale Station', called 'Creed'. It's very interesting because people think it would be 'Rocky VII' ... it's not, I have a supporting role. It will be great to take that character, who's actually not well, and pass on his knowledge while he still has time. I think it could be a great movie and a great challenge. It is going to happen.''
