Sylvester Stallone has been teasing the development of ‘Creed 2‘ for months, but now it seems more official than ever before. He’s just announced he’ll be back in the director’s chair this time around, and the original ‘Creed’ director Ryan Coogler won’t be returning.

Rocky himself took to Instagram to reveal that he not only wrote the script, but will also direct and produce the highly anticipated sequel. This would mark the 5th time Stallone has directed a film in the Rocky franchise (universe?).

I have mixed feelings about this. One one hand, I’m very disappointed Ryan Coogler who made a fresh and extremely entertaining film at the time that felt new. But on the other, Stallone has been directing Rocky for awhile, so he has experience. His films weren’t the most critically acclaimed of the franchise, but they had a lot of shining moments.

He also teases this may be the last film with the words “One more round!”. If this is indeed the truth, then I’m fine with it and it makes sense for Stallone to be finishing what he started.
