Earlier today, we reported that MGM was eyeing a production start of February 5th for Creed 2 and shooting would return to Philadelphia.
Now, Sly Stallone has taken to Instagram to announce he’ll be directing the film, not Ryan Coogler. He also reaffirmed our production report stating he’d begin filming next year.
It was assumed Sly would direct when he took over writing duties from Ryan.
Sly, Michael B. Jordan, and Tessa Thompson are expected to reprise their roles.
