This is how Sly writes his scripts. I guess he writes them on regular notebook paper and then he types them into a word processor on a computer. Sly didn’t write the first “Creed” movie but it looks like they’re giving him the opportunity to write the 2nd one himself. So is Ryan Coogler still going to direct the 2nd one? Probably. Coogler will direct, Sly will write.
I guess he’s really going for an Ivan Drago comeback and Dolph will probably reprise the role. Is Ivan Drago going to fight Adonis Creed in the film? We’ll have to wait and see.
People thought Rocky Balboa would never return to the big screen again but he did. Sylvester Stallone reprises his Rocky role for one more time. Is this the final time that Sly is gonna play Rocky? I predict, yes. I think there’s a possibility that Rocky might get killed off in this one… maybe die of a heart attack and Rocky will have an emotional death scene in the film maybe?
Anyway, this movie looks really great! I’ll probably be in the theater for this one since I’m a big Rocky fan.
Late last night on Netflix, I finally saw the film “Fruitvale Station”. A film based on the killing of Oscar Grant which was caused by police brutality at a train station in California at the Fruitvale BART station.
The film was an interesting concept. It had an interesting idea but the casting and the writing could have been better, though. I didn’t like Michael B. Jordan as Oscar and wish they could have picked a better actor. Plus the film tried so hard to be dramatic and “sad”. As the movie got going, you immediately know that the film was gonna get “sad” at the end so the film was too predictable for the most part. Even if the film was a short 1 hr. and a half, a lot of scenes dragged on too long.
While I do think Ryan Coogler the writer/director nailed the train station scene perfectly, it could have been more dramatic and more powerful. I still didn’t feel anything during that scene.
With that being said, I did like the movie… it could have been better. It does make me want to look into the Oscar Grant story more and I just started googling him after seeing the movie. Watching the real life videos in youtube as you see below.
Netflix just made this movie streamable so if you subscribe to Netflix yourself, this movie is still worth a look. Check it out!
Sly maybe done with the Rocky series but he never said anything about retiring the character for good! There’s a spinoff movie coming from the Rocky franchise. A film called, “Creed”, which will focus on the life of Apollo Creed’s grandson. MGM studios is setting Ryan Coogler to direct and Michael B. Jordan to play the grandson of Apollo. Sylvester Stallone is set to reprise his role as Rocky Balboa for the 7th time.
The story will be about Appolo’s grandson wanting to become a boxing champion much like his grandfather, Appolo, but he doesn’t have to and his family doesn’t want him to. So he goes for Rocky Balboa who is a retired boxer and becomes a mentor for Apollo’s grandson (Rocky will be his possible trainer too, I bet?).
Read the full story, here.
MGM studios must of gotten Sly’s written permission to make this movie since Sly fully owns the rights to the Rocky franchise. So Sly himself must be all for this film! I’m all for Sly playing Rocky one more time. He deserves another shot since, “Rocky Balboa”, the last Rocky film was kind of a disappointment and a let-down. “Rocky Balboa” was a good movie, don’t get me wrong but could have been a better film.
Sly has been talking about bringing Rambo back to the big screen for one last time!
I’m definitely looking forward to the “Creed” film and looking forward to seeing what they’re gonna do with it! I wonder if they’ll bring back Burt Young to play Paullie again as well?
