"One more Round!" said Stallone in the Instagram post.

The first film in the series, Creed, was directed by Ryan Coogler from a script he co-wrote with Aaron Covington.

Creed 2 will apparently begin shooting next year, potentially for release in 2019, we guess?

Stallone revealed earlier this year that Ivan Drago, the boxer who killed Apollo Creed in "Rocky IV", will be in the sequel.

Sylvester Stallone has announced he will be directing Creed 2, the latest film in the Rocky franchise. But Ryan Coogler is who made Creed the all-timer that it is: a movie full of incredible boxing sequences, superb character beats, and whose distinct blackness seperated it from every other mainstream blockbuster.

Rocky's stepping back into the directing ring.

Based upon Stallone's caption of his photo with Jordan, we can assume he has signed on to direct the film, as well as taking on the role of producer with the project. "2018" and the hashtags #Creed 2 #mgm #fitness #Rocky. This is the sure fire way to go from oscar nominated to razzie winning.

Stallone starred alongside Jordan in Creed, which was a continuation of the Rocky story that shifts the focus to Jordan's Adonis "Donny" Creed, son of Rocky Balboa's viral-turned-friend Apollo Creed. Creed was a commercial and critical success, earning Stallone raves for his more nuanced performance as the aging ex-fighter. However, with Coogler now an in-demand director with Black Panther on the way, his involvement in the Creed sequel has been up in the air.
