Also written by Frutivale director Coogler and Aaron Covington, the boxing drama will see Rocky Balboa (Stallone) train and mentor Adonis Creed (Jordan), the son of his late friend and rival, Apollo Creed.
Although Adonis never knew the world heavyweight champion father who died before he was born, he is eager to follow in his footsteps.
He heads to Philadelphia and tracks down Rocky, who insists that he is out of the fight game for good. Ultimately, Rocky sees in Adonis the strength and determination he had known in Apollo.
Stallone serves as a producer for the MGM/Warner Bros./New Line Cinema production alongside the late Robert Chartoff, William Chartoff, Kevin King Templeton, David Winkler, and Irwin Winkler. It is being executive produced by Nicolas Stern.
Creed will hit theaters on November 25, 2015 through Warner Bros., just in time for award season.
