This already sounds like it has several shades of Escape from New York.
The new version of the film is set to be directed by Ana Lily Amirpour (A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night), based on a script by Sascha Penn (Creed II).
Michael B Jordan and Sylvester Stallone are back for the second film in the revival of the Rocky franchise and this time Adonis Creed is gonna take on the son of the man that killed his dad.
Life has become a balancing act for Adonis Creed. Between personal obligations and training for his next big fight, he is up against the challenge of his life.
“With Rocky in his corner, it isn’t long before Adonis gets his own shot at the title…but can he develop not only the drive but also the heart of a true fighter, in time to get into the ring?”
