Adonis Creed will return.
It seems that the story of Adonis Creed (Michael B. Jordan) will continue, as MGM has tapped writer Zach Baylin to pen the script.
Baylin made news when his script, King Richard, about the father of tennis champions Venus and Serena Williams caught the eyes of Warner Bros. The film is now shooting with Will Smith in the leading role of Richard Williams.
Obviously, at this point the plot of Creed 3 is still very much a mystery, however it is likely that we’ll be seeing more of Jordan’s boxing champion, Sylvester Stallone’s Rocky Balboa, and Tessa Thompson’s Bianca.
The first film in the series was both written and directed by Ryan Coogler, while the second film was helmed by Steven Caple Jr., who directed from a script by Stallone and Juel Taylor.
The threequel is now in the very early stages of development, and while this is certainly exciting news for fans, it will likely be a while before it can begin shooting, as Jordan has several other projects in the pipeline right now.
More on Creed 3 when we have it.
