Sylvester Stallone Has Announced He Will Be Directing Creed 2 Movie

Sylvester Stallone Michael B. Jordan and Ryan Coogler in Creed

Variety reports Stallone broke the news on his Instagram with a photo of himself and Creed star Michael B. Jordan.

Now, Creed 2 is moving forward, and with Ryan Coogler busy in the MCU with Black Panther, a new director has taken charge for the sequel: Rocky himself, Sylvester Stallone.

After the first film's success both critically and commercially, it was only a matter of time before a sequel was announced.

Though the muscly Italian American has become most recognisable as the action hero star of Rocky, Rambo and, more recently, The Expendables, Stallone is an experienced director with eight films under his belt since 1978's Paradise Alley.

International Monetary Fund raises Korea's growth forecast to 3%
However, the recovery is not complete: although the baseline outlook is better, growth remains weak in many countries. In the last two years, under the Park Geun-hye administration, the nation's growth has been below 3 percent.

Of course, we can't help but notice something missing from Sylvester Stallone's announcement regarding Creed 2.

While 10 years have passed since he last helmed a "Rocky" film, it's unlikely that Stallone has lost his touch.

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.

Creed 2 doesn't have a release date just yet, but keep checking back for more updates as this feature continues to make its way through development!
