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.

PORTER:

Come down here, mate.

Holiday reluctantly obliges. He pats G on the head.

PORTER (CONT’D)

He found me, after some Evertonians

bashed me head in.

(motions to Holiday)

So he brought me in ere. Taught me

how to fight... Stopped pickin’ on

me after that didn’t they?

INSIDE THE GYM we cut to Porter- working drills with Holiday.

NARRATOR (V.O.)

Porter is expected to be sentenced

within the year on a handgun charge

that could land him behind bars for

up to 7 years.

We see Porter being interviewed in a close- up.

PORTER:

I feel like I could fight another

20 years. But numbers catch up to

everybody, so I’m treating this

like its me last...

Junior- wearing his Dad’s gold chain around his neck (it’s

huge on him) standing outside of the ring, mimicking his

dad’s moves. G watches him closely.

NARRATOR:

His opponent, Danny Wheeler, is

arguably his most formidable

challenge, yet.

IN A HIGHLIGHT REEL we see shots of DANNY “STUNTMAN” WHEELER

(Late 20s, Black) taking out several opponents in the ring.

There is a cut to TONY “DUKE” BURTON standing next to him as

he holds up a belt post- fight.

Adonis looks on at the screen, anger flashing over his face.

He turns it off, picks up his dumbbells, and starts lifting.

12 INT. ADONIS BEDROOM - DAY 12

Adonis sleeps under a blanket. The bedroom door creaks open,

and small set of eyes peek through. KAYLA CLABSADDLE (8,

Biracial, curly hair, DEAF) walks into the room. She walks

over to Adonis and gently pushes his shoulders. He opens his

eyes. (They talk in American Sign Language w/ subtitles.)
