Sylvester Stallone’s Rocky series is one of the biggest franchises in cinema history, and while the Creed spin-offs have added more depth to the story, the 6 films have told the story of Rocky in all its glory.

However, there seems to be a part that the story didn’t cover at all, which is where it all started, the very beginning. Sylvester is seeking to cover it soon as he is taking the creative responsibilities all upon himself.

The veteran actor and Rocky himself, Mr. Stallone took to Instagram to tease a fresh look at all he has in mind about the series. While his mapping of all the elements looks messy at first glance, you can tell after going through it that he’s put some real thought behind it.

This may be the strangest posting yet. I started out this morning by writing a treatment for a Rocky prequel For streaming. Ideally 10 episodes for a few seasons to really get to the heart of the Characters in there younger years – Here is a small portion of how my creative writing Process starts…Hope it happens – And then I needed to clear my head so I went fishing… Talk about extremes! Keep punching my friends.

While it is interesting to explore all the aspects of Rocky’s life before we had ever seen him in the first movie, but with a new actor being casted to play the character, fans might take some serious convincing to get on board with the project. Let us know which actors do you think would be the best suited to play The Italian Stallion.
