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.
