It's been confirmed Stallone is writing, directing, and producing the 6th film in the franchise. Filming starts in December. Personally, I'm looking forward to seeing the character on screen again. Here's the story from Coming Soon: Sly Stallone Starts Rocky 6 in December Source: Production Weekly October 12, 2005 Sylvester Stallone will direct and reprise his role as Rocky Balboa in the sixth installment of the boxing franchise, reports Production Weekly. In the film, lonely and 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. Rocky 6 is scheduled to begin filming early December in Los Angeles. Comments?
