"Looking forward to directing and Producing The incredibly talented Michael B Jordan in CREED 2 next year (sic) ..." Known for playing cinema's most famous boxer, Sylvester Stallone announced yesterday that he would direct the next spin-off from the Rocky saga.

Stallone co-produced the first "Creed" movie which released in 2015.

In addition to writing and starring in the original "Rocky", Stallone had directed four of the previous sequels, including "Rocky Balboa" - made 30 years after the original, when Stallone was 60 years old - which was assumed to bring closure to the successful franchise.

Block was finally able to make a run for it after 29 days in captivity when her kidnappers "went to the store to get some food". He is said to have told her that he needed help with a family emergency. "He risked a lot of things and put himself in danger".

Sylvester Stallone is jumping back in the ring for round two. Another photo on Instagram showed him and Jordan training with the caption, "Getting stronger!" Stallone is not only reprising his role as Rocky for the eighth time, he'll also write and direct the sequel! Recently, there was a recent rumor that Adonis Creed (Michael B. Jordan) would be facing the son of Ivan Drago for Creed 2. While the director and Jordan were overlooked during awards season, Stallone was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor, his first Oscar nomination since the original Rocky film, and won the Golden Globe in the same category.

"Creed" turned in a solid box office performance with $173 million worldwide.

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. However, with Coogler now an in-demand director with Black Panther on the way, his involvement in the Creed sequel has been up in the air.
