Warner Bros. Pictures and MGM have moved the filming for the “Rocky” spinoff Creed to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and we’ve got your first look at Sylvester Stallone and Michael B. Jordan on the set of the November 25 release.
Creed will follow the son of Apollo Creed with Stallone set to reprise his Rocky Balboa role, acting as the younger Creed’s reluctant trainer. The elder Creed, played by Carl Weathers, appeared in the first four “Rocky” films until a fight with Ivan Drago in Rocky IV led to his death in the ring.
Directed by Ryan Coogler, the film is also produced by Stallone along with Robert Chartoff, Kevin King Templeton, and Irwin Winkler. Nicolas Stern is executive producer. Creed was co-written by Aaron Covington and Coogler.
