London: Sylvester Stallone is set to reprise his legendary character of Rocky Balboa in spin-off film 'Creed'.

'Creed' will show the 67-year-old actor as the ageing boxer training the grandson of his most famous opponent and friend Apollo Creed, reported Contactmusic.

"I'm supposed to be doing a film with Ryan Coogler, who did 'Fruitvale Station', called 'Creed'. It's very interesting because people think it would be 'Rocky VII'... It's not, I have a supporting role," Stallone said.

"It will be great to take that character, who's actually not well, and pass on his knowledge while he still has time. I think it could be a great movie and a great challenge. It is going to happen," he added.
