Michael B. Jordan May Direct “Creed 3”
Michael B. Jordan has reportedly been offered an opportunity to direct the upcoming Creed 3 film.
Creed is boxing sports drama film directed by Ryan Coogler and written by Coogler and Aaron Covington. It was released in 2015. Both a spin-off and sequel in the Rocky film series, Michael B. Jordan stars as Adonis Johnson Creed, Apollo Creed’s son, with Sylvester Stallone reprising the role of Rocky Balboa.
It also features Tessa Thompson, Phylicia Rashad, Tony Bellew, and Graham McTavish. The film reunites Jordan with Fruitvale Station writer-director Coogler, as well as Wood Harris, with whom Jordan had worked on The Wire. The sequel, Creed 2, was released in 2018.
According to reports, Irwin Winkler, producer of both Creed films and the original Rocky series, “promised” Michael B. Jordan an opportunity to direct Creed 3. He states,
Last year in a conversation with our Creed star Michael B. Jordan, I offered him the opportunity to not only star in, but also to direct Creed 3.
While there has been no official announcement for Creed 3, Jordan recently was quoted as saying that it was “definitely” going to happen. Meanwhile, it appears that Stallone will not appear in any additional Creed movies. In 2018, he announced that he would not return for any additional sequels.
