Tessa Thompson has confirmed Michael B. Jordan is to direct ‘Creed III’.

That’s according to his co-star Tessa Thompson, who joked she is going to tell him to “dial down the sexiness” when he is directing her on set, in reference to the 33-year-old actor being named PEOPLE Magazine’s Sexiest Man Alive in 2020.Michael B. Jordan

She said: “He is directing the next ‘Creed’.”

Referring to Jordan’s new title, she said: “It’s going to be ammo, I think, for me when he is engaging with me as a director.

“I’m just going to tell him to dial down the s_exiness.”
Thompson admitted she “cannot wait” to joke with Jordan about the accolade when they are making the movie.

Speaking to MTV News, she quipped: “I’m going to pretend it hasn’t happened. They’re going to make another ‘Creed’ very soon, and I don’t need the S_exiest Man Alive to be … I don’t need it. I don’t need any of it. It’s too much for me to shoulder, it’s too much for me to handle.

“I’m so happy for him. And I will give him a lot of crap about it in person. I cannot wait.”

Thompson’s confirmation comes after it was revealed in October that Jordan was being considered as a potential director for the “Rocky” spin-off series, in which he also plays the titular boxer Adonis “Donnie” Creed.

The Hollywood star was previously offered the opportunity by “Rocky” and “Creed” producer Irwin Winkler.

The 89-year-old director and producer said: “I promised Michael B. Jordan that he’d get the chance to direct ‘Creed III’. Last year in a conversation with our ‘Creed’ star, I offered him the opportunity to not only star in, but also to direct ‘Creed III’.”
