Production on "Creed 2" is set to begin production in March in Philadelphia with director Steven Caple Jr., noted The Hollywood Reporter.
Caple Jr. was hand picked by Stallone and Jordan to helm the sequel after Stallone announced on social media that he was going to direct the film after writing the screenplays for six previous "Rocky" films and directing "Rocky II," "Rocky III,""Rocky IV" and "Rocky Balboa."
The first "Creed," released in November 2015, centered around Adonis Creed as he became a boxer trained by Stallone reprising his role as Rocky Balboa.
The film also starred Tessa Thompson who is also set to return for the sequel.
"Creed 2" is set to arrive in theaters on Nov. 21.
