Creed script
Creed (2015)
Synopsis: Adonis Johnson (Michael B. Jordan) never knew his famous father, boxing champion Apollo Creed, who died before Adonis was born. However, boxing is in his blood, so he seeks out Rocky Balboa (Sylvester Stallone) and asks the retired champ to be his trainer. Rocky sees much of Apollo in Adonis, and agrees to mentor him, even as he battles an opponent deadlier than any in the ring. With Rocky's help, Adonis soon gets a title shot, but whether he has the true heart of a fighter remains to be seen.

See you tomorrow?

He nods.

play on a Boxing Documentary. ON THE SCREEN WE SEE11

INT. PORTER’S CAR- DAY- TOXTETH, LIVERPOOL, UNITED KINGDOM 11

The camera shoots “PRETTY” RICKY PORTER (White, mid 30’s,

Scouse accent)- the unanimous #1 pound for pound fighter in

the world- as he walks around his old neighborhood with his

sons JUNIOR (8), and G (6, and small for his age) surrounded

by a nefarious entourage.

PORTER:

See I’m from Toxteth. Nothin wrong

with it, it made me.

At the mention of Toxteth, some members of his entourage mock

firing pistols at the camera. Porter, and his crew walk up to

a boxing gym, nestled in the corner of a decaying

neighborhood.

PORTER (CONT’D)

(motions to Junior)

I was a lot smaller than him, a

cheeky little bastard I was. I used

to get me ass kicked coming home

from school every day.

A wiry, bespectacled man sticks his head out of the doorway

and looks into the camera with disdain- this is GILES HOLIDAY

(55, White) despite his slight build, he demands respect.

HOLIDAY:

You gonna train or be a movie star?

Porter turns to Holiday and smiles.
