Hollywood Studios is producing “Drago,” a sequel to the boxing drama “Creed.” The company has reportedly hired screenwriter Robert Lawton, according to insiders.

In “Drago,” Dolph Lundgren will reprise the role of the same-named Russian fighter he played in 1985’s “Rocky IV,” as well as that of his son Viktor Drago (Florian Munteanu), who made his acting debut in “Creed II.” The Michael B. Jordan-led “Creed” series is a spin-off of Sylvester Stallone’s renowned “Rocky” series.

Before, Lawton wrote a spec script titled “Becoming Rocky” on the creation of the first “Rocky” movie. The company hired Lawton to develop a background for “Drago,” despite not moving forward with his picture proposal.

Lawton stated, “I’m approaching it as an enormous fan of the “Rocky” franchise who also happens to be a screenwriter. I’m really honoured and appreciative for this opportunity.

THE SPECIFICS OF THE PLOT HAVE BEEN KEPT A SECRET BY THE STUDIO.

It is presently preparing for the release of “Creed III,” which will star Michael B. Jordan as Adonis Creed, the son of Apollo Creed, who appeared in the first two films as Rocky Balboa’s antagonist before becoming his buddy. On November 23, “Creed III,” Jordan’s first film as a director, will be released.

In a historic mega-deal, Amazon is buying MGM Holdings in an effort to expand its Prime membership service to customers and potentially mine the intellectual property of franchises like James Bond and Rocky. The storied studio has one of the largest film and TV libraries.

THE TRANSACTION WILL VALUE THE STUDIO AT $8.45 BILLION, SUBJECT TO REGULATORY APPROVAL.

“The extensive catalogue of IP that we intend to rethink and develop with MGM’s experienced staff represents the real financial worth of this deal. Mike Hopkins, senior vp Prime Video and Amazon Studios, described the acquisition as “extremely exciting and full of chances for high-quality storytelling.”

The announcement of the acquisition comes just days after AT&T announced a $43 billion plan to spin off its WarnerMedia division, which includes HBO and Warner Bros., to Discovery. This acquisition is the latest significant consolidation to shake up the entertainment sector.
Amazon recently hired Jeff Blackburn to return to the Seattle-based company as head of global media and entertainment, overseeing divisions from games to audio and video, with a start date of June 7. Amazon is led by CEO Andy Jassy and founder Jeff Bezos, who has pushed the tech giant further into Hollywood.

With the exception of the pre-1986 film library, which remained with Turner (and many classic movies like The Wizard of Oz, Singin’ in the Rain, and 2001: A Space Odyssey are now in the WarnerMedia collection), Kerkorian quickly bought back the assets after selling MGM/UA to media mogul Ted Turner in 1986 for $1.5 billion.

THE NEXT YEAR, 1990, KERKORIAN SOLD ASSETS TO ITALIAN BUSINESSMAN GIANCARLO PARRETTI’S PATHE COMMUNICATIONS FOR $1.3 BILLION.

Later, Kerkorian led a different group to purchase the studio from French bank Credit Lyonnais in 1996. The studio was later sold in 2005 to a consortium led by Sony Corp. for an estimated $5 billion.

In November 2010, MGM declared bankruptcy. A month later, it emerged under new management, including the co-founders of Spyglass, Roger Birnbaum and Barber. The specifics of the plot have been kept a secret by the studio.

It is presently preparing for the release of “Creed III,” which will star Michael B. Jordan as Adonis Creed, the son of Apollo Creed, who appeared in the first two films as Rocky Balboa’s antagonist before becoming his buddy. On November 23, “Creed III,” Jordan’s first film as a director, will be released.
