Tell me what you think. I’m excited. MGM is excited. I hope you are too. Keep hitting. ‘

Monday, Stallone took to the site with a handwritten page of notes about the upcoming boxing project.

“This may be the strangest post ever,” he said in the caption. I started writing a treatment this morning for a Rocky prequel to stream. Ideally 10 episodes for a few seasons to really get to the core of the characters in their younger years – Here’s a little part of how my creative writing process begins …

The handwritten page of notes outlined the 1960s setting – he described it as ‘the most transformative generation in modern history’ – on which the prequel will take place.

“Imagine a time machine that simply takes us back to the origins of Rocky, a cinematic world filled with characters loved by people around the world for nearly five decades!” Stallone’s notes have been read.

The notes went on: ‘Needless to say, the 60s were a dynamic time. But among all this social seismic activity, we come across the rather simple life of 17-year-old Robert “Rocky” Balboa. When we first met Rocky in 1976, he was a very lost soul … We now see this young man struggling like all young people trying to find their place. ‘
