Rocky Balboa is coming to Deming!
The sequel to the 2015 hit “Creed” is set to film scenes in Deming in early June, New Mexico Governor Susana Martinez announced in a Facebook post Thursday.
In the highly-anticipated sequel, “Black Panther” star Michael B. Jordan and “Rocky” legend Sylvester Stallone will continue their respective roles as Adonis Creed and Rocky Balboa.
Under Balboa’s guidance, Creed will face off against Vicktor Drago, the son of Ivan Drago who famously killed Creed’s father in “Rocky IV”.
According to the post, the film will employ 75 New Mexico crew members and 46 background talent.
“I’m proud that New Mexico’s deep talent base continues to attract and support top-tier films,” Martinez said. “I can’t wait to see New Mexico on the big screen again!”
“Creed II” will hit theaters on November 21, 2018.
