Nearly 30 years after "Rocky" and 15 years after "Rocky V," Sylvester Stallone, 59, has confirmed that he will star in and direct "Rocky VI," according to Production Weekly.

The new film will see the verbally challenged Rocky Balboa in the middle of a lonely retirement. In an attempt to cheer himself up he takes on a few low-key bouts but becomes a media sensation when he's approached to fight reigning heavyweight champ Mason "The Line" Dixon. The original "Rocky" won the 1976 Oscar for Best Film.
