Stallone also posted recently on Instagram saying he is back in the gym, working on getting fit for shooting, which begins next year.

A question yet to be answered is, will Creed 2 still focus on Apollo or will Rocky take center ring?

Though the muscly Italian American has become most recognisable as the action hero star of Rocky, Rambo and, more recently, The Expendables, Stallone is an experienced director with eight films under his belt since 1978's Paradise Alley.

The actor, who produced and co-starred in the Rocky spinoff, announced Monday night that he'll return next year to produce and direct the sequel, starring Michael B. Jordan in the title role.

Sylvester Stallone has confirmed via his Instagram that he will be directing the new film.

International Monetary Fund projects global economy to grow at 3.6% this year
That said, India's economy is still expected to see robust growth - not far below 7% this year and above that level in 2018. Beyond next year, it said that it expects global growth to increase marginally, reaching 3.8 per cent by 2021.

Quick hits from Wisconsin's win over Nebraska
It was also the last pass the Badgers would throw as they turned to their punishing running game to finish off a 38-17 win. Taylor carried 25 times for the Badgers and collected his second 200-yard rushing performance in five games this season.

Up close with the costumes and props of Star Wars
The film is still largely shrouded in secrecy, but Monday we may get some new clues, because a new trailer is officially dropping. A trailer for the Star Wars sequel, " Star Wars: The Last Jedi ", will air Monday night during " Monday Night Football ".

While Stallone only acted in Creed, he had written every other Rocky movie until then, and directed four of the films.

Ryan Coogler will not return to direct the follow-up to 2015's lauded Rocky sequel Creed, but his replacement certainly knows what he's doing. Recently, there was a recent rumor that Adonis Creed (Michael B. Jordan) would be facing the son of Ivan Drago for Creed 2.

"Creed" turned in a solid box office performance with $173 million worldwide. "2018 #Creed 2 #mgm #fitness #Rocky (sic)".

However, Stallone's script hasn't yet been confirmed as the one that will 100 percent, without a shadow of a doubt, be used in the sequel. Besides, it's not like Coogler hasn't moved on to greener pastures, and you can see him work wonders in Black Panther next year.
