Musical 'Rocky' to debut in Germany next year
London, November 22 (ANI): Sylvester Stallone is backing a musical version of his hit movie Rocky, which will make its debut in Germany in November 2012.
The original movie spawned five other Rocky films and won three Oscars in 1977, including best direction and best picture.
Stallone has teamed up with boxing brothers Vladimir and Vitali Klitschko to bring the film to the stage.
"To see this story coming to life on a musical stage makes me proud," BBC quoted Stallone as saying.
The stage show is due to begin in Hamburg, while casting has yet to take place.
The New York Times reported earlier this year that the musical will transfer to Broadway later.
The Klitschko brothers will co-produce the musical with Stallone and train the actors in boxing skills.
"Seeing Sylvester Stallone in Rocky when we were kids actually was the reason for us to start boxing in the first place," said Vladimir, who beat British boxer David Haye in July. (ANI)
