The Day We Lost Rocky

Rocky Marciano's Hometown Tributes

A Better Marciano Movie?

The Boston Globe says the Marciano family has endorsed a third attempt to bring Rocky’s life to the silver screen in a biopic. Tennessee-based City of Peace Films and director Dustin Marcellino will call the film “49-0 / The Brockton Blockbuster.” The previous films have both been made-for-tv movies, the second staring Jon Favreau in 1999.

“‘My father is still counted as one of the greatest heavyweight fighters of all time and if he were alive today, he would be proud that we are working to bring the true story of his life to the big screen,’ said his son, Rocky Marciano Jr., in a statement from City of Peace Films.”

We wish the project the best of luck.
