We have two announcements in one here as the Creed movie, which stars Micheal B. Jordan as the son of the famous Apollo Creed boxer Adonis Johnson Creed, and his coach Rocky Balboa played by Sylvester Stallone, will be having a third sequel to the movie. Both featured in the two previous films and should also feature in this one.
However, not only will there be a third Creed movie to be released in November 2022, but Michael B. Jordan will also be making his debut in the director’s chair with this film!
Along with the Metro Goldwyn Mayer (MGM) film company confirming that Jordan will be directing and starring in the film, his co-stars Tessa Thompson playing Bianca Taylor and Phylicia Rashad playing the mother of Adonis, Mary Anne Creed, are both set to return for the third instalment, but we don’t yet know if Stallone will be returning as Adonis’ boxing coach Rocky.
The film is written by Keenan Coogler and Zach Baylin based on an outline by strong>Ryan Coogler, who is also serving as producer in associating with Proximity Media and Chartoff-Winkler Production.
Speaking about this new venture, Jordan said, “This franchise and in particular the themes of Creed III are deeply personal to me. I look forward to sharing the next chapter of Adonis Creed’s story with the awesome responsibility of being its director and namesake“.
We should surely be getting more information about the sequel, and why not a trailer of the movie, in the next few months.
