Michael B. Jordan just confirmed on ESPN's SportsNation that he will star in an all new ROCKY movie!
Michael told the other co-host of the show that he will be playing Apollo Creed's grandson! Michael could not say much about the film just yet, but did confirm his role in the movie. It will be written by Ryan Coogler ([Fruitvale Station](movie:832205)) who has worked with Jordan before. The movie will take place twenty years later and Rocky Balboa will be back. It was teased on SportsNation that Rocky could be a mentor to Apollo's grandson just like Apollo was to Balboa in his early career.
The star who will be showcased in the new [The Fantastic Four](movie:34667) reboot movie has already been a star in Hollywood since his days on HBO's The Wire. Michael B. Jordan can also be seen in the T.V. show Friday Night Lights and the movie Chronicle.
Can't wait to see what this new Rocky franchise will have to offer!
