Print this article It may seem like an odd choice for a musical but the 1980s sports classic "Rocky" is headed in that direction. Sylvester Stallone, along with boxers Wladimir and Vitali Klitschko, announced they will be producing "Rocky: The Musical," according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Many people love "Rocky" because of its classic underdog story but according to Stallone (who wrote and starred in the movie), it is about much more than just boxing. He wants the musical version to focus more on the love story between Rocky and Adrian than the exploits in the ring.
"At the end of the day, 'Rocky' is a love story and he could never have reached the final bell without Adrian,” Stallone said in the announcement, the publication reports. "To see this story coming to life on a musical stage makes me proud. And it would make 'Rocky' proud."
There has been no absences of excellent musicals in cinematic history and some of the best in recent memory are Best Picture winner "Chicago" and "Moulin Rouge," which also earned an Oscar nod.
