Sylvester Stallone will tell the story of his life and career in a memoir coming next year, Deadline reports.

Publisher William Morrow won the rights to the actor’s The Steps in an auction. The book, the magazine says, will be similar in structure to Matthew McConaughey’s Greenlights, which combined autobiography with inspirational, self-help material.

Stallone is one of the world’s most recognizable actors. He had minor roles in films including The Lords of Flatbush, Death Race 2000, and Farewell, My Lovely, before making his breakthrough in Rocky. Stallone played the titular boxer and wrote the screenplay for the film, which won the Academy Award for best picture.

He went on to star in five sequels to Rocky, as well as films including First Blood, Over the Top, Tango & Cash, Demolition Man, and Cop Land.

Byrd Leavell of the talent agency UTA Publishing said the title of The Steps comes from the iconic scene in Rocky where Stallone runs up the 72 steps to the Philadelphia Museum of Art as part of the character’s training.

“He came back to us with that thinking about the double meaning of Philly and running up the steps,” Leavell told Deadline. “But he also wanted to write a book that could help people.”
