Sylvester Stallone is set to make a movie comeback in a sixth 'Rocky' movie.
The former Hollywood heavyweight will reprise his role as a boxing champion in the upcoming 'Rocky Balboa'.
The latest instalment comes 15 years after Stallone starred in 'Rocky V'.
The 59-year-old - who wrote all the 'Rocky' films and directed the second, third and fourth instalments - will write and direct the film.
He revealed the movie - which will begin shooting in Philadelphia and Las Vegas next year - will focus on an older, widowed Rocky.
The boxer will be unwilling to fight again but eventually gets back in the ring "just to compete, not to win".
Stallone said: "I am drawing on a lot of my feelings that are in sync with many people's feelings about facing the last chapter of their lives and how they want it to be written."
Dan Taylor, president of Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, which is co-producing the film, said: "It's about self-examination."
