Michael B. Jordan In Talks to Play Apollo Creed's Grandson in Rocky Spin-Off

I mean, sure, a Rocky spin-off doesn’t sound that appealing on first blush, but, the movie would come from Fruitvale Station’s director Ryan Coogler, who is set to write and direct Creed, and if Michael B. Jordan lands the gig, step back.

The movie would center on Apollo Creed’s grandson, left to be raised by a rich family who didn’t want him to box. However, he’s got that CREED BLOOD in him, and you can’t keep a guy like that out of the ring. So, naturally, a trailer by the name of Rocky Balboa takes him under his wings and mentors him, likely to the championship bout.

It is apparently not just another franchise cash-in project, but the dream project of Ryan Coogler, and not the worst use of Sylvester Stallone in the world. I also know another Creed that would likely be free to make a cameo.

    So Sandra Bullock get's to win another Oscar for plating a white woman? Awesome!

  • Wigamer

    How do you plate a white woman? On a bed of frisée, or with a port-wine reduction? Hee. Sorry, resistance was futile.

  • TherecanbeonlyoneAdmin

    With a sprig of parsley as a garnish and a poor black teenager for colour.

    No, you drop them into an electrolytic solution as the cathode, add an anode and turn on a DC current...

  • BWeaves

    I'm sure the plating goes with the ". . . so, naturally, a trailer by the name of Rocky Balboa. . . " (sic)

  • Wigamer

    But...that trailer has wings. TWO of them, in fact.

  • Wigamer

    Stop talking to those people, Michael.

  • e jerry powell

    Susan Lucci would be so disappointed.
