After the huge critical success of 2015 movie ‘Creed’, the makers have decided to come up with the second installment of the franchise; as we know, ‘Creed’ is the revived franchise of ‘Rocky’, which made Sylvester Stallone a Superstar, it all started in 1976 when Sylvester Stallone was introduced as Rocky Balboa in the movie ‘Rocky’. Then it was followed by six movies and the series ended in 2006 with ‘Rocky Balboa’.
Then in 2015, they came up with the idea of a revival of the franchise and that’s how ‘Creed’ came and became a huge hit. The movie was directed by Ryan Coogler, who came up with the idea of ‘Creed’ and the success of that movie goes to him, but now, when the second movie is about to start, he is not there for the franchise. Coogler will be directing ‘Black Panther’, which will be shooting at the same time of ‘Creed 2’; so, it would be difficult for him to direct ‘Creed 2’.
So now it’s official that the movie will be directed by none other than the man himself Sylvester Stallone. Now Sly Stallone has directed many movies in the past including ‘Rocky II’, ‘Rocky III’, ‘Rocky IV’ and ‘Rocky Balboa’. Stallone is a good director and he can tell a compelling story with his direction, we have seen that in past, and it feels good that he will be directing his own movie after so long.
Stallone broke the news in his Instagram, he posted a picture with the leading man of ‘Creed 2’, Michael B. Jordan and wrote that he is excited to direct the movie. The movie will be releasing in 2018 and expectations from this movie are high, especially now when people know that it will be directed by Sly Stallone.
