Adonis Johnson is itching to be back in the ring.
Variety is reporting â€œCreed 2â€ is looking at a November 2017 release date. Thatâ€™s plenty of training time for Sylvester Stallone, Michael B. Jordan and hopefullyâ€”Carl Weathers.
Stallone has been bouncingsome ideas with Ryan Coogler for the plot for the sequel. Coogler just signed on to direct â€œBlack Pantherâ€ recently, so it means heâ€™ll be an executive producer for â€œCreed 2â€ due to scheduling.
As reported recently, Stallone has a desire to bring Weathers into this franchise as Apollo Creed by setting a plot line in the past similar to â€œThe Godfather 2.â€ A more likely scenario is Adonis Johnson battling a bigger and tougher opponent.
Stallone just won a Golden Globe this past weekend for his role in â€œCreed.â€
