Sylvester Stallone has confirmed that he will be sitting behind the lens for "Creed 2".

Close to a decade later, writer/director Ryan Coogler - fresh of the success of his Sundance breakout "Fruitvale Station" - convinced Stallone to come back as Rocky. Stallone wrote and starred in all six Rocky films, receiving two nominations for the 1976 original, and directed Rocky II-IV and 2006's Rocky Balboa. Creed followed the life and career of Adonis Johnson (played by Michael B. Jordan) as he attempts to break into the world of boxing, to follow in the footsteps of his father.
