After dominating the boxing world, Adonis Creed (Michael B. Jordan) has been thriving in both his career and family life. When a childhood friend and former boxing prodigy, Damian (Jonathan Majors), resurfaces after serving a long sentence in prison, he is eager to prove that he deserves his shot in the ring. The face off between former friends is more than just a fight. To settle the score, Adonis must put his future on the line to battle Damian – a fighter who has nothing to lose.
Jordan will also be stepping behind the camera for the first time to helm this third instalment in the boxing drama franchise. Tessa Thompson and Phylicia Rashad are set to reprise their respective roles, but Sylvester Stallone will not be back as Rocky Balboa. Zach Baylin and Keenan Coogler penned the script.
Produced by Irwin Winkler, p.g.a., Charles Winkler, William Chartoff, David Winkler, Ryan Coogler, Michael B. Jordan, Elizabeth Raposo, Jonathan Glickman, and Sylvester Stallone, Creed III is set to hit theaters on March 3, 2023.
