Sylvester Stallone Will Direct & Produce 'Creed 2' Himself

Stallone announced the Creed news with an understated Instagram post, sharing an old photo of himself and Jordan. "One more round!" Earlier this, Stallone announced that the sequel would begin shooting sometime in 2018. Will Stallone finally win his acting Oscar?

Now, it's been confirmed that Sylvester Stallone will not only be returning for Creed 2, but he will also be producing and directing the movie. This confirms that Creed director and co-writer Ryan Coogler won't be involved with the sequel, as Stallone has already stated that he has written the movie's script.
