Sylvester Stallone set to direct Michael B. Jordan in 'Creed 2'

Creed Sylvester Stallone

Stallone announced the Creed news with an understated Instagram post, sharing an old photo of himself and Jordan.

While Stallone's more recent directorial ventures have been, to put it bluntly, incredibly boring (he was last seen helming the ambitious and bafflingly successful The Expendables), he at least here already has a solid blueprint from Coogler to work with.

Fans of the Rocky series have a lot to two-step about, as Sylvester Stallone recently announced that he'll be directing star Michael B. Jordan in the sequel to 2015's Creed.




Ryan Coogler (Fruitvale Station, upcoming Black Panther) directed the first movie to huge acclaim, but obviously will not return for this second instalment, which Stallone reveals through his message that should roll into production next year for a supposed 2019 release.

Jordan returns back as Adonis Johnson, son of the late Apollo Creed in the sequel. The movie made $173.6 million at the worldwide box office. Stallone also shared a photograph of himself standing with Michael. Stallone won a Golden Globe for the role. It is possible that "Creed 2" will come out as early as next year. Cor, as if we couldn't love him any more. Will Stallone finally win his acting Oscar?
