Ludwig Göransson has been tapped to score the upcoming boxing drama Creed. The film is directed by Ryan Coogler and stars Sylvester Stallone, Michael B. Jordan, Tessa Thompson, Phylicia Rashad and Anthony Bellew. Stallone stars in his iconic role as Rocky Balboa who acts a trainer for the grandson of Apollo Creed, portrayed by Carl Weathers in 1976’s original Rocky film. Coogler has also co-written the screenplay with Aaron Covington. Robert Chartoff (Rocky series, Ender’s Game, The Gambler) is producing the project with Irwin Winkler (Goodfellas, The Right Stuff, Life as a House), Charles and David Winkler & William Chartoff (The Mechanic), Stallone and Kevin King Templeton (The Expendables, Rambo). Göransson has previously collaborated with Coogler on 2013’s Fruitvale Station, as well as a number of short films. Five of the six previous Rocky films were scored by Bill Conti. Creed is set to be released on November 25, 2015 by Warner Bros. Pictures.
Goransson also continues to score Fox’s New Girl and Community, which will have its sixth season premiere later this month on Yahoo.
