Stallone Teases “Creed II” Start With Graphic

Production is ramping up on “Creed II,” the upcoming sequel to the Ryan Coogler-directed “Rocky” spin-off “Creed” which was both a critical and commercial success in 2015.

Steven Caple Jr. takes over the helm of the second one which Sylvester Stallone has penned and returns to star in alongside Michael B. Jordan and Tessa Thompson. Also back is Dolph Lundgren, reprising his role of Ivan Drago from the fourth film. Joining them is Florian Munteanu who plays Drago’s son.

Today, Stallone has posted the below fan-made graphic on his Instagram account which suggests filming is about to get underway. “Creed II” is currently targeting a November release.
