If you loved the movie “Creed,” then start preparing and counting down to November 2017 for it’s sequel.
According to Variety, director Ryan Coogler’s idea for the second movie will capture the days of Rocky and the return of Apollo Creed, who will be played by Carl Weathers. During an interview they had with Sylvester Stallone, the beloved Rocky character said:
Ryan has some ideas going forward and backward and actually seeing Rocky and Apollo together. Think of ‘The Godfather 2.’ That’s what he was thinking of, which was kind of ambitious.
Stallone also mentions that Coogler might not be behind the cameras directing this motion picture but might take the title of executive producer instead due to his rumored directing job of Marvel’s Black Panther and the conflicting schedules.
I know Ryan is going to be gone for a couple of years. There’s a diminishing time acceptance of a sequel.
“Creed” has grossed over $105 million in the U.S. and has been nominated for a handful of awards. We’ll keep you posted on whats next!
