Sylvester Stallone set to direct, produce 'Creed 2'

Sylvester Stallone says he's directing Creed 2

Exactly one good thing is happening in Hollywood right now: Sylvester Stallone has announced not only that Creed-the 2015 Rocky spin-off starring Michael B. Jordan-is getting a sequel, but also that he will be directing it himself. Stallone has previously written every film in the series except for Creed, and directed Rocky II, III and IV as well as the sixth entry Rocky Balboa. More on the story below.

As fans may know, Sly wrote the first six Rocky films and directed four of them, the last was 2006's Rocky Balboa. When you add in the fact that Creed 2 is rumored to introduce Ivan Drago's son as Adonis Johnson's (Michael B. Jordan) opponent, this whole endeavor just seems ill conceived from the jump.

Sylvester Stallone has signed on to produce and direct a follow-up to writer/director Ryan Coogler's Creed movie.




However, Stallone's script hasn't yet been confirmed as the one that will 100 percent, without a shadow of a doubt, be used in the sequel. His late father's former best friend as he pursues a career on boxing. Stallone made the announcement in a post on Instagram. Cor, as if we couldn't love him any more. Drago, played by Dolph Lundgren, will apparently reprise his role from Rocky IV.

A release date for Creed 2 has not been announced.

Coogler went on to helm the upcoming Black Panther, in which Jordan also appears, and will work with him again in the in-development drama Wrong Answer.
