Apparently some studio execs think it's time to revitalize the Rocky franchise with a new beginning. This time, Rocky as the trainer and the grandson of Apollo Creed becoming a contender. Director Ryan Coogler is taking the reigns this time around. Coogler had a fair amount of success this past summer with his drama, Fruitville Station.
I'm not sold on this idea and think its time to leave well enough alone. But, MGM thinks its time to cash in again. I guess we'll see what happens. Personally, I'd rather see a tag team Drago/Hulk VS. Clubber Lang/Tommy Gunn cage match to the death. But, I don't think the execs will agree.
