‘Creed 3’ is incoming and this time Michael B. Jordan will not only star, but also aim to knockout in his directorial debut.
Full story below…
In an interview to promote new movie ‘Sylvie’s Love,’ Jordan’s ‘Creed’ co-star Tessa Thompson informed MTV:
“He is directing the next Creed.”
The news lines up with the words of ‘Creed’ producer Irwin Winkler, who wrote in his book ‘A Life in Movies: Stories From 50 Years in Hollywood’:
“I promised Michael B. Jordan that he’d get his chance to direct Creed III. Last year in a conversation with [him], I offered him the opportunity to not only star in, but also to direct Creed III.”
A spin-off of the ‘Rocky’ film franchise, ‘Creed’ has enjoyed championship success of its own at the box office. For, the first film amassed $173.6 million and its 2018 sequel commanded $214.1 million. Both of which were significantly higher than their costs of production. In short, commercial smashes.
