POW, Sly Stallone bringing back ROCKY
There is a new ROCKY film in the works from Sylvestor Stallone, because after countless films, he hasn’t had enough.
However this is not going to be what we have seen before, the film titled CREED to be directed by Ryan Coogler for MGM, will focus on Apollo Creed’s grandson. With the fantastic Michael B. Jordon (CHRONICLE) being set up to take the lead, that is excellent damn casting right there.
This new story will have Jordon play the grandson of Apollo, after being raised with privilege and he wants to take up boxing despite the family being against it. He sets his sights on getting Rocky Balboa as a mentor, however Rocky is not keen.
I am sure Rocky will come around and train him, I mean what’s the point if he doesn’t?
Given that the last ROCKY film was pretty solid, this could go that way also, with Stallone not directing there are endless possibilities. As an icon of pop culture, aren’t we all kind of eager for another bout with Balboa? It makes sense to have the younger person come in now, with Rocky as the mentor. Will they bring up the epic bromance he had with Apollo? BRING IT ON!
