News: A Rocky spinoff, Creed, may star Fruitvale Station's Michael B. Jordan

Fruitvale Station writer-director Ryan Coogler is reportedly set to direct and co-write a spinoff of Rocky titled Creed. The spinoff would focus on Apollo Creed's grandson who, despite not wanting to box, is believed to have the potential to follow in the boxing footsteps of his late champion grandfather. MGM is considering Fruitvale's Michael B. Jordan for the starring role, and Sylvester Stallone's Rocky would reluctantly return to the ring to mentor the descendant of his former opponent and friend. Coogler came up with the idea and the studio liked it so much they decided to pursue it. Creed would be the seventh film in the Rocky franchise, and it sounds better than simply having Rocky come out of retirement again for some strange reason. See more details here.
