Rocky 7 Sylvester Stallone

Rocky 7Sylvester Stallone must have enjoyed to wear boxing gloves again because he's planning to make yet another Rocky movie sequel! He's been talking indeed about making Rocky 7. He would develop this project once he would have wrapped Rambo 5..

Ok legends never die, but come on, do we really need a new Rambo movie? Sylvester Stallone is still a damn strong guy, he would knock me out with just half a blow, that's sure... But one can't deny that he's getting old... Why would we want to watch an old dude on the ring? And that wouldn't be new: he did it already with Rocky Balboa (aka Rocky 6).

Well, here's what the iconic Sylvester Stallone said:

"I know I'll probably make a fool of myself if I make another Rocky film after turning 60. Even my wife says, 'Don't do it. You're embarrassing the kids'. But I told her, 'If I don't try I'll be a really unhappy man'.
You have to do it. Artists like me have to go through the dark over and over again.
When I was 21 years old and at drama school, my teacher said to me, 'If you ever put your head out there, thousands of people will try to cut it off, but that's exactly what you need to do as an artist.' I know it’s ludicrous and everyone would laugh. I would laugh about it. But I also know that I’d be successful if I can make this a film about becoming older, not about boxing but about myself."

So Sylvester Stallone isn't imbued with himself and he knows that he can't just remake an other Rocky 6. A movie about becoming older? Is he going to be coach? Or is he going to clean up some unfortunate neighborhood (like Clint Eastwood in Gran Torino)?

If you're fan of Sylvester Stallone and his movies do you have any advice for Rocky 7?
