Jordan will make his feature directing debut with Creed III, in addition to leading the upcoming episode. The plot is currently unclear, but Keenan Coogler (Space Jam: A New Legacy) and Zach Baylin (King Richard) are writing the script based on a narrative idea by original co-writer/director Ryan Coogler (Black Panther).

Charles Winkler, William Chartoff, and David Winkler are producing the picture under Chartoff-Winkler Productions in partnership with Proximity Media with Jonathan Glickman, Jordan, and Coogler, with executive producers Adam Rosenberg, Sev Ohanian, and Zinzi Coogler.
