Sylvester Stallone recently confirmed on his Instagram account that he's not only staring in and producing Creed 2, but he's directing it as well! Yep, Stallone is getting back behind the camera to direct again. The last movie that he directed was The Expendables back in 2010. In regards to Creed 2, Stallone made the following statement:
“Looking forward to directing and Producing The incredibly talented Michael B Jordan in CREED 2 next year … One more Round !”
I think it's great that Stallone will be directing Creed 2! I loved the first film and I'm excited about this sequel, especially because Dolph Lundgren is set to reprise his role of the Russian boxer Ivan Drago. He has already started his training! The thought of seeing Rocky and Drago coming face to face again is exciting!
There are no details on the story for the sequel yet, but there's a good chance that we'll see Michael B. Jordan's Adonis Creed step into the ring with Drago's son. We'll just have to wait and see. it would certainly make for an interesting story since Drago killed Adonis' dad Apollo in the ring.
The first Creed movie was co-written and directed by Ryan Coogler. What do you all think about Stallone jumping on board to direct Creed 2?
