Sylvester Stallone Shoots 'Creed' in South Philly



    New "Rocky" Sequel Filming in Philadelphia

    The latest installment in the "Rocky" series, titled "Creed," is filming in parts of Philadelphia right now. NBC10's Keith Jones shows us how Philly is getting a taste of Hollywood. (Published Wednesday, Feb. 18, 2015)

    Actor Sylvester Stallone was spotted on the streets of South Philadelphia on Tuesday shooting his new spin-off movie from the "Rocky" franchise, "Creed."

    A fan captured video of the 68-year-old actor checking out the 1300 block of Wharton Street, which was shut down for filming.


    Victor Cafe, an Italian restaurant along the block, was converted into the fictional eatery "Adrian's" -- complete with a hanging sign and green cloth awnings. Stallone waved hi before snapping a photo of the street with his smartphone.

    Film crews have been filming the movie in several locations around Philadelphia recently. Stallone  snapped a selfie with fans who raced him up the "Rocky" steps outside the Philadelphia Museum of Art last month.

    "Creed" focuses on the grandson of Apollo Creed, the fictional rival of the famous Rocky Balboa, who is now working with Balboa to help become a boxing champion. It will be the seventh film in the "Rocky" franchise. It is scheduled to be released on November 25.
