When it comes to chronicling the journey of Rocky Balboa, nobody understands the underdog pugilist better than the guy who created him and has played him in seven different movies.
That’s why Sylvester Stallone has revealed in an Instagram post that when he steps into his most famous role for the eighth time in “Creed 2” it will be as star, producer, writer and director.
“Looking forward to directing and Producing The incredibly talented Michael B Jordan in CREED 2 next year,” wrote Stallone on Instagram, adding: “One more Round.”
“Creed” told the story of former champ Rocky Balboa training an up-and-coming boxer (Michael B. Jordan) who just happens to be the son of Rocky’s foe-turned-friend Apollo Creed.
“Creed” wound up becoming a box-office smash, bringing in a worldwide gross of $173 million, as well as earning Stallone a Best Supporting Actor Oscar nomination.
No word yet on when “Creed 2” will be making its way into a multiplex near you, but Stallone seemingly confirmed to TMZ that Dolph Lundgren will be reprising his role as Russian boxer Ivan Drago from “Rocky IV” — and revealed “you know I gotta hit Drago once.” Watch:
