THERE IS NO TOMORROW! THERE IS NO TOMORROW!
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!
