The story will feature Michael B. Jordan as the son of Carl Weathers' Apollo Creed character.
"Fruitvale Station" filmmaker Ryan Coogler co-wrote the screenplay with Aaron Covington, that sees Apollo's offspring has no desire to box and yet possesses the gifts and potential of his grandfather. He needs a mentor and seeks out retired fighter Rocky Balboa (Stallone) who isn't eager to return to the boxing world, even as a trainer.
The young Creed will take on a savage opponent named Pretty Ricky Porter (British champion boxer Tony Bellew). Champion boxer Andre Ward is also in the film. Dear White People and Selma star Tessa Thompson has won the female lead role.
The project was Coogler's idea in the first place.
Stallone, Kevin King, Irwin Winkler and Robert Chartoff will produce.
the reported fifth and final film in the John Rambo film series has a new title - "Rambo: Last Blood ". There's no word on when production would start here, but it does look like it will be shot before Stallone goes to work on the Gregory Scarpa crime biopic " Scarpa ".
