The success of Fruitvale Station, this summer’s heart-wrenching depiction of the tragic Oscar Grant story, would, under any circumstances, make its writer and director one to watch. The fact that it was Coogler’s first full-length feature, that he was only 27 when filming began, and that it went on to win the Sundance Audience Award makes him among Hollywood’s most coveted talents. The USC Film School graduate’s next project is expected to be Creed, Rocky spinoff that will have him directing Fruitvale star Michael B. Jordan once more.
