Sylvester Stallone Will Direct, Write, and Produce ‘Creed 2’

Sylvester Stallone’s Instagram has been a gem for Rocky fans, from sharing updates on his script for Creed 2 to teasing the sequel’s production start date. And now he’s announced some bigger news: the highly anticipated film has found its director. (Yes, it’s Sly.)

Rocky himself will step behind the camera once again to helm Creed 2, Stallone announced via Instagram on Monday night. The Oscar nominated actor previously directed Rocky II, III and IV, as well as 2006’s Rocky Balboa. He shared a photo of himself with Michael B. Jordan on the red carpet for 2015 film to announced the news:

Stallone will now write, direct, produce, and co-star in Creed 2. We don’t know much about the movie beyond what little breadcrumbs Stallone has scattered across social media. He’s revealed the sequel to Ryan Coogler’s film would start filming in 2018 and shared two handwritten pages from his 439-page script. It’s exciting news for Rocky fans as Creed was the only film in the boxing franchise not penned by Stallone, written instead by Coogler and Aaron Covington. You can also expect Dolph Lundgren‘s Ivan Drago to return and get back in the ring to face Rocky in the sequel. Stallone teased: “You know I gotta hit Drago once.”

If you’re not already following Stallone on the ‘gram, better change that quick. Keep an eye there for more Creed 2 updates in the coming months.
