This can be filed in both “Are you kidding me?” and “Hell yeah, I’ll watch that!”

Deadline are reporting that Fruitvale Station director Ryan Coogler is helming a Rocky Spinoff that will focus on Apollo Creed’s grandson. The film will star the unnaturally charismatic Michael B. Jordan and Sylvester Stallone will reprise his iconic role again in a mentor capacity. He’s the new Mickey.

What should read like a cynical cash grab has genuinely got my attention. I think Stallone did something seriously remarkable in Rocky Balboa and while it’s probably sensible to leave the character alone, I confess to wanting see more of the Italian Stallion.

Again, Hell yeah!
