'Creed III' in the Works With Michael B. Jordan Directing
Michael B. Jordan is set to star in and direct the boxing drama, "Creed III".
This will be Jordan's feature film directorial debut, and MGM plans to release it on Nov. 23, 2022.
Jordan said in a statement, "Creed III is that moment -- a time in my life where I've grown more sure of who I am, holding agency in my own story, maturing personally, growing professionally, and learning from the greats like Ryan Coogler, most recently Denzel Washington, and other top tier directors I respect. All of which sets the table for this moment."
Jordan played Apollo Creed's son Adonis Johnson in 2015's "Creed" and 2018's "Creed II".
His co-stars Tessa Thompson and Phylicia Rashad are also expected to reprise their characters of Bianca and Mary Anne for the third movie.
The films are spinoffs of the iconic "Rocky" boxing franchise, starring Sylvester Stallone.
