Star Wars 7, Mission Impossible 5 and now Rocky 7?

With the UK's generous tax breaks, films such as 'Mission Impossible 5' and 'Star Wars 7' have been lured to shoot in London but now it looks like Sylvester Stallone is going to appear for his latest movie.

According to several reports, producers for 'Creed', Stallone's last Rocky outing, are scouting locations in the London area including famous landmarks such as the Shard to shoot scenes for the upcoming film, which will follow Rocky Balboa helping to train and mentor the grandson of Apollo Creed.

At 68, Stallone has shown no signs of slowing down, and with the success of Rocky Balboa the fans are about to take their next journey in the franchise's final chapter. Written and directed by Ryan Coogler (Fruitvale Station), the film is scheduled for release this November.

Michael B. Jordan, Graham McTavish and Phylicia Rashad are some of the actors attached to the project.
