TAKING NOTES … MAYBE ON CREED’S RETURN?

Sly Stallone and Creed co-star Michael B. Jordan were snapped by paparazzi photographers this weekend after lunch in The Palm restaurant in Beverly Hills. (See all the photos here.)

Stallone is seen toting around a white book which appears to show a handwritten “Rocky” on the front cover, along with another word we can’t make out. Some fans are speculating the words on the cover are “Rocky” and “Mickey”, but this cannot be confirmed and is doubtful.

Michael B. Jordan, recently cast as the lead in Creed director Ryan Coogler’s film “Black Panther”, looked great with a new hairstyle, cool shades and jeans. Stallone gave Jordan a loveable hug as they stood chatting outside the restaurant, where Jordan was also spotted carrying a black notebook.

Rocky producer Irwin Winkler commented earlier this year that he expected preliminary work on Creed 2 to begin – roughly – in March, 2016. So far, no official buzz has been heard about whether Creed 2 will ever be a reality – but a Sly and MBJ lunch date could definitely indicate that something’s up!
