Will there be one Creed IV?
Currently, there’s no word on whether Jordan plans to reprise his role as Adonis Creed, but whether he’ll continue to follow in the footsteps of Sylvester Stallone and Rocky, the franchise will not conclude with the latest installment. Stallone starred in six rocky movies before reprising his role in Belief And Creed II. Creed III is the first film of the franchise in which the actor does not star. While Jordan hasn’t said if he plans to reprise Creed, he has shared that he plans to direct more.
“I have to,” Jordan said Good morning America when asked if he wants to direct again. “All the lessons I learned on this first try, I want to get back to it and do it again. I love it. I love it.” During the interview, Jordan also talked about his favorite aspect of directing and the difficulties of directing and starring in the same movie.
“I think as an actor you’re always part of someone else’s vision and you try to be the best you can be,” he said. “But when you have a vision in your head — and you can see it clearly — of other people seeing exactly what you see, I think that’s really satisfying.” He added, “Being able to prep, train and prepare for the next day of shooting – that’s probably… what was the hardest part for me.”
