Sylvester Stallone Says ‘Creed’ Sequel Could Reunite Rocky and Apollo (EXCLUSIVE)

After a successful comeback in “Creed,” which has grossed $103 million at the U.S. box office, Sylvester Stallone revealed in a new interview with Variety that he’s already getting ready to step back in the ring for another sequel where he’ll play Rocky Balboa.

MGM, which financed the Warner Bros. release with New Line, is onboard. “There’s no doubt that we’re making a ‘Creed 2,’” says MGM CEO Gary Barber.

It’s not clear if Ryan Coogler, who is in negotiations for Marvel’s “Black Panther,” will return as director of the next “Creed.” “I know Ryan is probably going to be gone for a couple years,” Stallone says. “So there will be a quandary on: Do we work with another director and have Ryan produce, or do we wait? There’s a diminishing time acceptance of a sequel. Now they are cranking them out in a year.”

Coogler and Stallone have already developed ideas for the new “Creed.” One version of the story would take place in the past, which would mean — in a surprise that would energize the franchise’s fans — bringing back Carl Weathers to play Apollo Creed, who died in 1985’s “Rocky IV.” “Ryan has some ideas of going forward and backward and actually seeing Rocky and Apollo together,” Stallone revealed. “Think of ‘The Godfather 2.’ That’s what he was thinking of, which was kind of ambitious.” Stallone said he’d recently bumped into Weathers, who looked like he was still in good shape. “I can’t believe I got in the ring with him,” he says. “Even if it was play fighting.”

Coogler is startled to hear that Stallone has already let the cat out of the bag about their plan. “Oh no!” he says with a sigh. “There are no secrets with Sly.” Jordan sounds more skeptical. “So it’s going to be a CGI-version of Sly?” he teases, adding that he’d like to be in the next film. “I’m trying to think about it. Knowing Ryan, he’ll find a clever way to make that work.”

Another option would be a linear story with Apollo’s son Adonis (Michael B. Jordan) taking on another challenger. “You’ll have him face a different opponent, which I would say is a more ferocious, big Russian,” Stallone says. “You can start to meld my experiences and then you start to bring different cultures into it. And you can see what’s happening with the Russians today in America. The complication will come with the girl’s ambition, because she’s not Adrian. She has places to go, things to see, the clock is running on her hearing.”

This creative team did well with Creed, so they can do whatever they want as long as it isn't laughably bad.

I'd be interested if Coogler was writing/directing but barring that this sounds like a money grab.

A prequel would make no sense.

If you're going to do a sequel make it linear.

A prequel makes sense if you're going to show Adonis the man the Rocky befriended. It's not a full prequel, but I'm sure there will be those moments that we never saw between Creed/Rocky that can impact his relationship with Don.

‘Creed’ Sequel Aims for November 2017 Release (EXCLUSIVE)
JANUARY 11, 2016 | 12:20PM PT

@RaminSetoodeh

MGM is eyeing a November 2017 release date for the sequel to “Creed,” Variety has learned.

That would allow the film to open exactly two years after the first chapter starring Michael B. Jordan hit theaters. The Warner Bros. release has gone on to gross more than $105 million at the domestic box office and land Sylvester Stallone a Golden Globe for best supporting actor. “That’s my goal,” MGM CEO Gary Barber told Variety on Sunday night at the Golden Globes of his release plan, adding that the date hasn’t been set in stone yet.

If the movie does come out that soon, it could mean that Ryan Coogler — who is in talks to direct Marvel’s “Black Panther” –might not be able to return as director.

In a recent cover story with Variety, Stallone alluded to the possibility that Coogler would be an executive producer of the second “Creed” due to scheduling. “I know Ryan is going to be gone for a couple years,” Stallone said. “There’s a diminishing time acceptance of a sequel.”

Stallone also revealed a potential plot line of the film, which could be set in the past and feature the return of Carl Weathers as the late Apollo Creed. “Ryan has some ideas of going forward and backward and actually seeing Rocky and Apollo together,” Stallone said. “Think of ‘The Godfather 2.’ That’s what he was thinking of, which was kind of ambitious.”

I assume Adonis won't be fighting Ivan Drago...so he'll be fighting Drago's son? In a battle of "your daddy killed my daddy"

The first Creed did leave us hanging with Rocky's cancer battle. I'd like to see some closure with that storyline.

Is this movie actually still happening? I love the Rocky saga, but also feel like Creed was the perfect full circle ending, not sure I need another...

Last update (post #9) was from January of 2016 saying they were hoping for a November 2017 release.

Considering it's July and they haven't even started filming yet, November isn't happening.

Rocky Balboa was the perfect ending. Creed was good but mostly unnecessary. A sequel isn't going to harm the series' legacy much, I suppose.

You know, I have to agree with this now that I think about it more. "Rocky Balboa" was the perfect ending to the series. "Creed" was nice side note. But I fear another film would just feel like too much. Maybe they really should put it to rest.

leave it be. at some point, if they keep making these, they'll kill off Rocky, and I don't want to see that.

There is potential for a Creed 2 to let it slip by away forever. This isn't anymore about Rocky, it's about Apollo's son and he should take over the helm. Give youngsters some inspiration out there to become future ring legends. :)

I like the idea of bringing Drago into the storyline again, but I don't want to see a prequel. I just don't want them to kill off Rocky while Stallone is still living and can play the part. IMO, Balboa is one of the best characters ever...

Stallone is writing the Creed sequel


Stallone has been fully focused on the Creed sequel for MGM. He is writing the script and has hinted online that the plot might pit Michael B. Jordan’s Adonis character against the son of Drago, the Russian heavyweight (played by Dolph Lundgren) who killed Apollo Creed (Carl Weathers) in the ring during 1985’s Rocky IV. The hope is to get that film into production next year.

Sounds good to me, hopefully Dolph is in it.

re: Creed II (2018, D: Caple, Jr.) S: Jordan, Stallone, Lundgren, Munteanu, Thompson
 
At this point, I'm sure it's almost a given Dolph/Drago are involved to a certain extent. Sly's online 'hints' have been pretty clear such that it would be a big disappointment if it doesn't work out.
