One of the most unlikely theatre adaptations rumoured for 2012 has to be Sly Stallone's musical adaptation of the classic '70s boxing movie 'Rocky'. Word is that Sly has teamed up with champion heavyweight boxers Vladimir and Vitaly Klitschko to create Rocky Das Musical in Germany. The Ukranian brothers are hugely popular in their adopted home of Germany but can they turn their tallents from the ring to the stage?
Other films have made a successful crossover into musical theatre. Wizard of Oz the Musical, Shrek the Musical and Ghost are all having successful runs in London theatres but can Rocky join them? We can only wait and see.
