Today, Variety announced that Steven Capel Jr. (The Land) will direct Creed 2. Originally, it was believed that star Sylvester Stallone would also direct the upcoming boxing sequel after Ryan Coogler revealed he wouldn’t be returning. Stallone, however, will still be returning for the film along with Micheal B. Jordan and Tessa Thompson. This time Adonis Creed will be facing off against the son of the man who killed his father; Ivan Drago. We at Omega Underground revealed that production is expected to commence early next year.
The script was written by Sly Stallone and Cheo Hodari Coker “We could not be more fortunate and excited for the collaboration of Steven, Sly, Michael and the producers, to build upon the success of ‘Creed,’” said Jonathan Glickman, MGM’s president.
