The Voices Behind Creed II
Hollywood’s next big sequel is premiering in the next two weeks. On Thanksgiving Day Creed II is opening in theaters and it is truly something to look forward. This film is a sequel to Creed (2015) which is the eighth installment of the Rocky film series. It stars Michael B. Jordan, Tessa Thompson and Sylvester Stallone.
The film follows Adonis Creed (Micheal B. Jordan) as he trains to fight the son of Ivan Drago, who is the very man who killed his father in the ring 33 years prior.
The voices that birthed this film are Writer Juel Taylor and Director Steven Caple Jr. Both Taylor and Caple are alumni of USC’s MFA in Film & TV Production. When creating this film it was important to continue the legacy of the original film and Rocky series, but both Taylor and Caple made sure to bring their own voice to this picture. Steven Caple Jr states, “…it was imporatnt to stay true to that while putting your own stamp on it.”
