PHILADELPHIA, July 25 (UPI) -- Sylvester Stallone will reprise his iconic role of Rocky Balboa in a film about the pugilist grandson of his late rival and friend, Fox 29 Philadelphia said.

Rocky will serve as a mentor to Apollo Creed's grandson in "Creed."

Michael B. Jordan will play the younger boxer, the report said. He can now be seen in "Fruitvale Station."

Stallone, 67, has already played Rocky in six movies. The most recent installment "Rocky Balboa" hit theaters in 2006.
