Sylvester Stallone to Direct and Produce

The film itself generated US$173.6 million (RM732.5 million) at the worldwide box office, over four times its US$40 million budget, under the direction of Ryan Coogler, who also co-wrote.

Actor Sylvester Stallone has announced that he will direct the upcoming sports drama film "Creed 2".

Sylvester Stallone will be appearing as a guest star in the next season of "This is Us". Jordan played Adonis Creed, the son of Apollo Creed, with Stallone reprising the role of Rocky Balboa. The star has now revealed who will direct Creed 2-himself.

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.

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

Creed 2 doesn't have a release date just yet, but keep checking back for more updates as this feature continues to make its way through development!

My Entertainment World has an interesting nugget on their site, noting the start of filming of "Creed 2" to begin February 5, 2018 in Philadelphia.
