Here’s some exciting news I wasn’t expecting, according to THR, MGM has hired Zack Baylin (King Richard) to pen the script for Creed III.
Michael B. Jordan will reprise his role of Adonis Creed in the third film in Rocky spin-off series. No director is attached to the project as of yet.
I’m surprised by the announcement, but excited to see which direction they’ll take Adonis. However, it may be a while before camera’s start rolling on the third film as Jordan has a packed schedule for the foreseeable future.
The first Creed, written and directed by Ryan Googler (Black Panther & Fruitvale Station) grossed $173 million at the world-wide box office. Creed II was helmed by Steven Caple Jr. (The Land) written by Juel Taylor and Sylvester Stallone, it earned $214 millions world-wide.
One thing that isn’t mentioned is in THR’s report is whether or not Sylvester Stallone will return as Balboa. The Rocky star previously stated Creed II was his last.
“This is probably my last rodeo, because what I thought happened — and has happened — I never expected. I thought Rocky was over in 2006, with the release of Rocky Balboa, and I was very happy with that. And then all of a sudden this young man presented himself and the whole story changed. It went on to a new generation, new problems, new adventures. And I couldn’t be happier, because as I step back, because my story has been told, there’s a whole new world that is going to be opening up for the audience, for this generation. Thank you very much, [Creed II director] Steven [Caple Jr.], and definitely you, Michael, for making that possible. Now you have to carry the mantle.”
Money talks however, so we shall see what happens. We’ll keep you posted on further updates from Creed III.
