'Creed' sequel to start shooting in 2018, hints Sylvester Stallone

Los Angeles: Actor-filmmaker Sylvester Stallone has teased that he is in the midst of training to prepare for a potential 2018 shoot of a sequel to "Creed".

The veteran action star shared an Instagram photo of him and Michael B Jordan from the 2015 film, with the caption, "Getting stronger !!! 2018 #Creed2 #mgm #fitness #Rocky."

The post marked the latest tease from the "Rocky" creator regarding a sequel to the Oscar-nominated "Creed", which chronicled Rocky's training of Adonis Creed (Jordan) as he attempted to follow in the footsteps of his father, Apollo (originally played by Carl Weathers).

Back in July, Stallone shared a photo of his notebook containing a completed draft for the "Creed" sequel, hinting that audiences might see the return of Ivan Drago (Dolph Lundgren), the Soviet boxer who killed Apollo in the ring in "Rocky IV".
