Apollo Creed to revive Rocky movie series in 'Creed'
The legend of Apollo Creed lives! MGM has hired Ryan Coogler to direct a revival of the Rocky movie franchise, to be called simply Creed. The movie will follow the career of Apollo Creed's grandson (to be played by Michael B. Jordan) and will include plenty of flashbacks to the first three movies, according to Yahoo Movies.
Sylvester Stallone will return to play the aging Balboa, who will now train his former rival's grandson. Personally, I'd rather see an origins story for Apollo Creed, where we see how he became a boxing champion, eventually leading us to his meeting with Rocky.
