A Rocky spin-off is in the works, with Sylvester Stallone returning as the Italian Stallion, it has been reported.
Deadline are claiming that the aging actor will reprise his famous role in Creed, a film centred on the grandson of Rocky Balboa’s legendary rival-turned-friend Apollo Creed. Fruitvale Station star Michael B Jordan has been lined up for the role of the younger Creed, who pursues a career in the ring and seeks the mentorship of Balboa.
Ryan Coogler is pegged to write and direct the film, and he worked with Jordan on Fruitvale Station.
No release date window has been given as of yet.
