As we all know good and well by this point in time, action movie extraordinaire, Dolph Lundgren recently reprised his classic Rocky IV role of Captain Ivan Drago in director Steven Caple Jr.'s Creed III alongside Michael B Jordan, Sylvester Stallone, and Tessa Thompson. But is the Masters of the Universe star up for returning as Drago if Creed 3 steps into the ring? Lucky it seems that not only would Lundgren loved to return as The Siberian Express but he thinks none other than Michael B. Jordan should direct the third film.
Dolph Lundgren was recently at Celebrity Fan Fest and spoke a bit about the possibility of returning as Drago in Creed 3, saying this.
"I've heard things about a Creed 3. I think Drago is in it somehow. I heard Michael B. Jordan wants to direct something, maybe he could direct it like Stallone and Rocky. I hope I'm in it."
For those of you that might not know, what Lundgren means by "like Stallone and Rocky" is that Stallone directed a handful of the franchise's film such as Rocky II, Rocky III, Rocky IV, and Rocky Balboa. He did this after writing and starring in all the Rocky movies - other than the original Creed which was written by Black Panther's Ryan Coogler along with Aaron Covington. So I guess Lundgren thinks that if Stallone could make the transition from onscreen boxer to the director of a major motion picture, then so can Jordan. Sounds like a plan to me!
Michael B. Jordan starred as the titular Adonis Creed in Creed II along with Sylvester Stallone as Robert "Rocky" Balboa, Tessa Thompson as Adonis's girlfriend, Bianca Taylor, Dolph Lundgren as Ivan Drago, and Florian "Big Nasty" Munteanu as Viktor Drago. Phylicia Rashad joined them as Mary Anne Creed, along with Wood Harris as Tony "Little Duke" Evers, Andre Ward as Danny "Stuntman" Wheeler, Milo Ventimiglia as Rocky's estranged son, Robert Balboa Jr., and Brigitte Nielsen as Ivan's ex-wife and Viktor's mother, Ludmilla Drago.
Steven Caple Jr directed Creed II from a screenplay written by Juel Taylor and Sylvester Stallone from a story by Sascha Penn and Cheo Hodari Coker based on characters created by Sylvester Stallone. On top of penning the script and co-starring in the hit sequel, Stallone also produced Creed II along with Kevin King-Templeton, Charles Winkler, William Chartoff, David Winkler, and Irwin Winkler. Ludwig Göransson provided the movie with its killer score while Kramer Morgenthau handled the flick's cinematography, and Dana E. Glauberman edited the footage together along with Saira Haider and Paul Harb.
Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, New Line Cinema, and Chartoff-Winkler Productions were the production companies behind the new movie which Mirror Releasing unleashed into a theater near you here in the US and Warner Bros Pictures distributed internationally back on November 21, 2018. The $50 million production scored $115.7 million in the United States and Canada, and $98.3 million in other territories, for a total worldwide gross of $214 million.
