Sylvester Stallone To Direct And Produce 'Creed 2'

Sylvester Stallone To Direct And Produce 'Creed 2'

Now, Creed 2 is moving forward, and with Ryan Coogler busy in the MCU with Black Panther, a new director has taken charge for the sequel: Rocky himself, Sylvester Stallone.

Speculation has already begun on the fate of Stallone's character "Rocky Balboa" who was suffering from cancer in the last installment.

Stallone announced the Creed news with an understated Instagram post, sharing an old photo of himself and Jordan. Apart from directing, the actor will also produce the flick.

While Stallone only acted in Creed, he had written every other Rocky movie until then, and directed four of the films.

Sylvester Stallone will be appearing as a guest star in the next season of "This is Us".

With the project still a few months away from the start of production, it's understandable that we don't know too much about Creed 2 just yet.

It's been confirmed that the blockbuster will have strong ties to one of the franchises' most popular sequels, Rocky IV, and will feature the return of Dolph Lundgren's Ivan Drago. The movie will see Michael B. Jordan return to the title role, with Stallone expected to play Rocky once more.

A release date for "Creed 2" has not been set yet.
