Michael B. Jordan is reportedly in talks to not only star in, but also direct, the third installment in the “Creed” film series. The first “Creed” film was helmed by Ryan Coogler, who directed Jordan in the films “Fruitvale Station” and “Black Panther.” “Creed II” was directed by Steven Caple Jr. Jordan previously executive-produced “Creed II.”
“Creed III” will mark the ninth installment in the “Rocky” franchise, dating back to the original starring Sylvester Stallone that won the Academy Award for Best Picture in 1977.
Creed III will continue the saga of Adonis Creed, played by Jordan. The original movie grossed $173 million at the worldwide box office. The second film earned more than $214 million around the world.
