Creed 2 Casting - Florian Munteanu

Back in November last year, we heard that Creed 2 might be looking for someone to play the son of Ivan Drago, the legendary boxer responsible for killing Apollo Creed in the ring at the beginning of Rocky IV in 1985. At the time, an MMA fighter named  Sage Northcutt said that he sent in a tape as an audition for the role, but there had been no real confirmation that the spin-off sequel starring Michael B. Jordan would bring in the offspring of another legacy character. Now not only do we have confirmation of the character’s involvement in the sequel, but we know who’s playing him as well, and it’s not the aforementioned MMA fighter.

Get the details on the Creed 2 casting of Ivan Drago’s son below. Read More »

Creed 2 Director

A few months ago, Sylvester Stallone revealed on his Instagram page that he would be directing Creed 2, the follow-up to Ryan Coogler‘s acclaimed Rocky spin-off from 2015. The silence that followed was deafening and now it seems like we know why – he’s not directing it. In fact, a brand new director whose name and work you probably don’t know is stepping behind the camera.

Creed 2 Drago's son

Ryan Coogler’s outstanding 2015 film Creed was all about legacy: a son stepping out of his father’s shadow with the help of one of his old man’s best friends and most famous rival. That friend happened to be boxing legend Rocky Balboa, and since Coogler is busy with Black Panther, Rocky actor Sylvester Stallone is stepping behind the camerato direct Creed 2, which he’s been heavily teasing on Instagram over the past few months.

Stallone hinted that Dolph Lundgren‘s Ivan Drago might return to the franchise in some capacity, and we wondered if that meant Lundgren would step back into the ring or return to train a new character. Now, a UFC fighter has revealed that he’s auditioned to play Drago’s son in the film, so it seems as if the sequel will continue that thematic exploration of legacy that began in Creed.

creed 2 director

We live in the age of legacy sequels, movies that dust off a dormant franchise and often allow the old cast to hand off the torch to a new generation. Some of these have been magnificent: Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Mad Max: Fury Road, Blade Runner 2049, and, of course, Creed, which spun the Rocky series in an enthralling new direction.

And now, two years after the first film was a box office and critical sensation, Creed 2 has found a director in Sylvester Stallone.
