There’s been loads of buzz about Creed ever since Ryan Coogler hit it big with his feature directorial debut Fruitvale Station last year, but until now, it’s really just amounted to a whole bunch of talk with no sign of the project actually moving forward. However, that’s just changed courtesy of a report claiming that World Boxing Association champion Andre Ward and British champion boxer Tony Bellew are both in negations to join the cast of the film.
Should their deals go through, they’ll join Michael B. Jordan who’s set to play the grandson of Apollo Creed. Even though his family would rather not see him box, he’s got loads of potential and winds up being mentored by Sylvester Stallone’s Rocky Balboa. Hit the jump for more.
