Rumors of a Rocky spin-off project hit the web recently. Ryan Coogler and Michael B. Jordan, the director and star respectively of the acclaimed drama Fruitvale Station, are beginning work on the project entitled Creed.
Focusing on the grandson of Apollo Creed and his desire to become a champion boxer, the project would also feature the return of Stallone as Rocky Balboa, who is sought out by the young fighter to help train him. The official synopsis is as follows:
“Raised in an upper-crust home thanks to the ring riches earned by his grandfather, the young man doesn’t have to box and his family doesn’t want him to. Yet he has the natural instinct and gifts and potential that made his grandfather the heavyweight champion until Rocky Balboa took his crown. Creed’s grandson needs a mentor and turns to Balboa, who is out of boxing completely and not eager to return.”
