Sylvester Stallone Announces He's Directing, Producing 'Creed' Sequel

After previously teasing his script for the follow-up to the 2015 film, which earned him an Academy Award nomination for Best Supporting Actor, Stallone has announced he's going to direct the eighth installment in the Rocky franchise. Creed followed the life and career of Adonis Johnson (played by Michael B. Jordan) as he attempts to break into the world of boxing, to follow in the footsteps of his father. Michael B. Jordan is a bona fide star, and we know the two have chemistry from the first Creed. "One more Round", Stallone captioned the post.

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

Sylvester Stallone is not only no stranger to directing, but the truth is that Rocky titles make up the bulk of his resume in that arena. Representatives for MGM, which produced the film, and Coogler have not yet responded to Vanity Fair's request for comment. Part of this is because the film has spent the last two years without a director, however, the project how now moved forward in that particular area.
