On Monday night, while the world turned their attention to Monday Night Football to be among the first to watch the latest trailer for Star Wars: The Last Jedi, Sylvester Stallone took to his Instagram to inevitably announce that he will direct and produce Creed 2, a sequel to the 2015 boxing drama which grossed more than $173 million worldwide.
“Looking forward to directing and producing the incredibly talented Michael B. Jordan in Creed 2 next year,” he captioned the photo of him and his Creed co-star at the film’s premiere. “One more round!” Earlier this year, Stallone announced that the sequel would begin shooting sometime in 2018.
While specific plot details surrounding Creed 2 have yet to be revealed, it seems likely that Ryan Coogler, who also directed the first Creed movie, will return to pen the screenplay for the sequel along with Aaron Covington, though no official deal has been made and the project is still in early development.
A release date for Creed 2 has not been announced.
