Keep punching.” Just yesterday, Sylvester‘s rep confirmed to The Hollywood Reporter that he won’t be in Creed III, but didn’t give an explanation as to why. Creed III will mark the directorial debut for Michael. The film is scheduled to be released on November 23, 2022.
Back in March 2021, Jordan via MGM spoke of how directing a film has always been something he had looked forward to doing, he explained ‘timing’ had to be right. Further telling how ‘Creed III’ helped him better understand himself, he said, “I”ve grown more sure of who I am, holding agency in my own story, maturing personally, growing professionally, and learning from the greats like Ryan Coogler, most recently Denzel Washington, and other top tier directors I respect. All of which sets the table for this moment.” The star explained the franchise is deeply ‘personal’ to him.
