Stallone reveals who’ll play Ivan Drago’s son

SYLVESTER Stallone has revealed who'll be playing Ivan Drago's son in Creed 2.

Stallone announced on Instagram that the role will be played by Romanian boxer and fitness model, Florian "Big Nasty" Munteanu.

Creed 2, which is due out this November, will be the 27-year-old's first movie and from the looks of it, he won't have to do much to get in shape for the film. The ripped athlete is 193cm tall and weighs just over 111kg.

The upcoming movie is a sequel to 2015's Creed which was a hit with critics and currently has a 95 per cent approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes.

Michael B. Jordan is set to reprise his role as Adonis Creed, the son of Apollo Creed, and Sylvester Stallone will of course be playing Rocky Balboa again.

Dolph Lundgren will also appear in Creed 2 and will reprise his role as Ivan Drago, who killed Apollo Creed and had a memorable fight with Balboa in Rocky IV.

We don't know much about the plot but you'd think it would be likely that Adonis will take on Drago's son in a fight to avenge his father's death?

Production on the movie will start in March in Philadelphia.
