rocky

Yes you read the title right, Sylvester Stallone’s cult underdog film Rocky is making its way to Broadway. With the actor taking the role of writer and co-producer for it’s theatrical adaptation I wouldn’t be too quick to write it off, especially as shows like Sister Act and Legally Blonde have proven that films can be adapted to the format successfully, even though those films are hardly (if ever) mentioned in the same breath as the 1978 cult movie.

From the video it’s difficult to tell as to whether the production will honour the original film, though it does have a few nice touches, especially the spinning ring at 2:03. The show premiered late last year in Germany and will make its Broadway debut in February 2014.
