Sylvester Stallone to Star in ROCKY Spin-Off Film CREED
It looks like we're going to get another Rocky film! MGM is looking to bring on director Ryan Coogler and actor Michael B. Jordan (Chronicle) to develop the project. The two recently worked together on an small film called Fruitvale Station, which is doing very well at the box office for an indie. The movie will be called Creed, and it will be a Rocky spinoff.
According to Variety, the story will focus on Apollo Creed’s grandson, played by Jordan, and Sylvester Stallone is on board to reprise his role as Rocky Balboa. They go into more detail saying,
"The story would follow Creed’s grandson, who has grown up reaping the spoils of all his grandfather’s winnings and is forbidden by his family to enter the world of boxing. Against his family’s wishes, he is drawn to boxing and seeks out Balboa to teach him how to fight and follow in his grandfather’s footsteps."
This actually sounds like it could be an amazing film! I'm excited to see how it turns out! What do you think of the concept?
