Sly is going to keep busy in 2015.

On Sylvester Stallone’s Twitter page, he tweeted his upcoming projects next year with the Rocky spin-off film “Creed,” and then “Rambo: Last Blood.” And then to wrap things up in “Scarpa,” a film based on the real life Greg Scarpa.

With “Creed,” this spin-off to the “Rocky” films will follow Apollo Creed’s grandson with Rocky training him to be a boxer. Apollo Creed, played by Carl Weathers, boxed Rocky in “Rocky” and “Rocky II.” In “Rocky III,” Apollo trained Rocky to fight a younger James “Clubber” Lang. So the new film sounds like Rocky is returning the favor.

He announced the completion with the script with a tweet. See the photo below, but don’t flip and zoom in if you want to spoil the ending to “Creed” for yourself.

There were rumors about another Rambo movie and now it's confirmed with “Rambo: Last Blood.” The details are still under wraps.

As for “Scarpa,” it’s based on an FBI informant and enforcer of the Colombo crime family. The script is written by “Goodfellas” scribe Nicholas Pileggi and set to be directed by Brad Furman “The Lincoln Lawyer.”

With these three big projects, Stallone tweeted he’s back to the gym for the New Year.
