I wish I was making this up, but Sylvester Stallone is set to star in a sixth Rocky movie, despite being a billion years old.
Stallone told the Daily Variety trade magazine the movie will focus on an aging, widowed Rocky who is reluctant to get back in the ring but ends up doing it "just to compete, not to win." "I am drawing on a lot of my feelings that are in sync with many people's feelings about facing the last chapter of their lives and how they want it to be written," Stallone said.
I think in this one, Rocky loses his old-person medication and then has to enter an underground boxing tournament to win pill money. I don't want to ruin anything, but let's just say that at the end of the movie Rocky has a heart attack and is declared 1 billion years old by a doctor.
