UPDATE: SYLVESTER STALLONE is officially taking over the director’s chair for CREED 2 from original helmer Ryan Coogler. He will also serve as producer along with co-starring in the film. Sly confirmed this via Instagram.

SYLVESTER STALLONE is currently working on the script for the sequel to 2015’s box office hit ‘Creed’ that earned him a Golden Globes win for best supporting actor. Sly has been dropping major hints that a certain Russian badass may be returning to the ‘Rocky’ universe in the form of DOLPH LUNDGREN’s ‘Ivan Drago’ from ‘Rocky IV’!

The original ‘Creed’ followed an aging ‘Rocky Balboa’ as he trains MICHAEL B. JORDAN’s ‘Adonis Creed’. As we all know, Adonis’ father ‘Apollo Creed’ was killed by ‘Drago’ in ‘Rocky IV’. What will happen when Adonis meets his father’s killer face to face? Perhaps Drago have a son and Adonis fights him in the ring in the ultimate grudge match?

CREED 2 will most likely start production once director RYAN COOGLER finishes up his work on Marvel’s ‘Black Panther’.

Stay tuned for more details.
