From Broadway.com, August 26, 2013: Yo, Broadway! Rocky Musical Sets Dates at the Winter Garden Theatre…

Directed by Alex Timbers, the musical is scheduled to open on March 13.

The news broke this week that MGM is moving forward with Creed to be directed by Ryan Coogler and to pair him with his Fruitville Station star, Michael B. Jordan in the starring role of Apollo Creed’s grandson.
Coogler and Jordan teamed for Fruitville Station which won the Grand Jury Prize and the Audience Awards at the Sundance Film Festival. This has been Coogler’s dream project for some time and appears to be on the fast track due to the success of Fruitville Station and the participation of Jordan and Sly Stallone.
Stallone would reprise his role as Rocky Balboa. Creed will follow the story of Apollo Creed’s grandson who has been raised in privilege thanks to the fortune Apollo Creed earned in the ring. His grandson wants to box, but his family is against it – he doesn’t need the money and his grandfather was killed in the ring. So he turns to his grandfather’s biggest rival [the man who took his title] and who also cornered his grandfather in the fight that killed him… Rocky Balboa. Rocky has long been retired and has little desire to return to the sport.
Creed will be produced by Irwin Winkler and Robert Chartoff, who produced the Rocky series, and joining them will be Stallone and Kevin King.
