The Skinny on The Rocky Sequel
January 25, 2006 -- Sylvester Stallone is rocking Philadelphia again, making a new Rocky movie at several locations around town. SallyAnn Mosey got an exclusive interview with him and his brother between shoots Wednesday. And he says he's happy to be back in the city that loves you back.
Filming for the 6th Rocky movie continues. Today, Stallone and crew spent the day at the Italian Market. His roots are in Philadelphia's Italian Market. To prove it, Sylvester Stallone graciously signed autographs allowing hundreds to look on during today's filming. Fans say he's genuine, the real deal! Richy Mastero/SOUTH PHILADELPHIA "He was so nice. I was in Rocky #I with you." Frank Stallone: "It's a pay back for making his life successful. This is the final symphony. Ken Johnson/"King of Props" "This morning we were here an hour early and this is where we did all the shopping. People here are the greatest in the world." There is something that is truly inspirational about being in the Italian Market with Sylvester Stallone. In the real spirit of art imitating life, not only were folks getting autographs behind the scenes, movie extra Elaine Harris of Mount Airy plays her movie role. Elaine Harris: "I'm a rocky fan. That wasn't much a stretch." Stallone admits this is the last movie we'll see the 60-yr-old fighter in the ring, he might not be throwing in the towel. Sylvester Stallone: "There's always been a negativity to sequels ...but I like the sequels. Everyday is a different chapter. It not like you record 3 hours of your life and suddenly the rest of your life is not interesting. No." Never say never to a possible sequel. This next movie is due out March 2007. Hollywood it hoping it'll pack a punch at the box office. It's already a hit here with Philadelphia fans. Sylvester Stallone again "Keep punching because it's not how hard you hit...it's how hard you can be hit and keep going."
