"Yo, Adrian", Rocky Is Becoming A Musical

 One of my favorite sports movies of all time has to be Rocky starring Slyvester Stallone. So, you can understand my surprise when I heard it was being made into a musical in Germany.

Stallone himself is behind the project along with co-producers, world champion boxing brothers Wladimir and Vitali Klitschko:

Stallone said in giving the pugilist classic the Andrew Lloyd Webber treatment he would be focusing on "Rocky’s" romantic side.

"At the end of the day, 'Rocky' is a love story and he could never have reached the final bell without Adrian," said Stallone. "To see this story coming to life on a musical stage makes me proud. And it would make Rocky proud."

“Rocky: The Musical” is set to debut in Hamburg, Germany in 2012 and could possibly see a run on Broadway if successful.

If it does come to America, it might be worth seeing for the “Eye Of The Tiger” musical number.
