As if Rocky I, II, III, IV, and V were merely meant to whet your appetite for pugilistic parable, Sylvester Stallone has announced his intention to bring Rocky VI to a cineplex near you. The former star of Rambo (and current member of AARP) is set to write, direct, and star in the next installment of the Rocky series, almost thirty years after the original hit the big screen. BBC News was kind enough to share this brief plot summary:
The new movie will show Rocky as an ageing, lonely has-been in Philadelphia who is reluctant to come out of retirement.
Judging from this rather pointed synopsis, Stallone won’t have to rely too much on his imagination when writing the screenplay.
