Sylvester Stallone is planning on turning his Oscar-winning boxing film, “Rocky,” into…a musical.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Stallone, along with world champion boxing brother VVladimir and Vitali Klitschko are taking “Rocky” to the stage.

According to reports, Stallone said the musical will focus on Rocky and Adrian’s romance.

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

Noted Broadway writer Thomas Meehan will write the script and Tony Award nominee Alex Timbers will direct. The Klitchko brothers, in addition to co-producing, will train the actor to play Rocky.
