Michael B. Jordan Reportedly Eyed to Direct 'Creed IV'

According to a report, another Creed film is reportedly in development. The report also notes that star Michael B. Jordan could be set to return to direct Creed IV.

During Deadline’s Contenders Film event in Los Angeles, Creed franchise’s producer, Irwin Winkler, shared, “We are planning to do Creed IV right now… We have a really good story [and] a really good plot. We got a little delayed because of the strikes, but about a year from now we’re going into pre-production.”

Despite noting that Jordan was set to direct the upcoming installment, Winkler peddled back stating he “wasn’t supposed to say.” “[We’re] just glad that this one worked and people want to see more,” said panelist and producing partner Elizabeth Raposo, joined by writer Keenan Coogler.

Released earlier this year, Creed III served as Michael B. Jordan’s directorial debut and earned an estimated $58.7 million USD domestically and $41.8 million USD internationally, exceeding expectations to become the biggest sports film box office opening ever.
