Peter Farrelly to direct I Play Rocky

Peter Farrelly is set to direct I Play Rocky from a screenplay by Peter Gamble, according to a Variety report. It is a film that explores the events behind closed doors on the production of Rocky, the boxing film that turned Sylvester Stallone into a star. Farrelly will also produce I Play Rocky with Christian Baha and erstwhile Warner Bros. film chief Toby Emmerich. He is best known for titles such as Dumb & Dumber, There’s Something About Mary, Green Book, and Ricky Stanicky.

"I’ve been a fan of Peter Farrelly as both a filmmaker and a person since getting to work with him on the music for Dumb and Dumber. But it was Green Book that made me think of Pete for this inspiring screenplay. Christian Baha and I feel blessed to have Pete at the helm for this film. And like the unknown Stallone starring in Rocky, Pete will be conducting a worldwide search to discover another actor who just needs one shot—in I Play Rocky—to show the world what he can do,” said Emmerich.

The makers are now seeking actors for the project.
