The pair - who worked together on films including Coogler's 2013 directorial debut 'Fruitvale Station', 2015 'Rocky' spin-off 'Creed' and 'Black Panther' - have re-teamed for third time and details about their new project have been kept tightly under wraps but it's now been revealed as a supernatural thriller involving vampires.

Cinematographer Autumn Durald Arkapaw confirmed filming is now underway by posting a picture of a clapper board from the set, but he redacted the film's title from the post on Instagram.

Deadline.com reports the film is a "supernatural thriller" due for release in March 2025 and also stars Jack O'Connell, Delroy Lindo, Jayme Lawson, Omar Benson Miller, and Wunmi Mosaku.

Comicbookmovie.com reports the film was kept so secret, studio bosses who were interested had to "make the pilgrimage" to the offices of Coogler's agents just to take a look at the script.

The website reports the film will be set in the Jim Crow-era South and possibly involve "vampires and Southern supernatural traditions" and Jordan may be playing twin brothers, but the details are unconfirmed.

Production is believed to be taking place in New Orleans, Louisiana.

Meanwhile, Jordan is set to continue his story as heavyweight champion boxer Adonis Creed - the son of Apollo Creed, Rocky's most famous opponent - in a fourth 'Creed' film.

The Hollywood star made his directorial debut on 2023's 'Creed III', which was the first film in the 'Rocky' series not to feature creator Sylvester Stallone as heroic fighter Rocky Balboa.

While Coogler is believed to be taking charge of an reboot of 'The X-Files' for Disney's 20th Century Studios.

Series creator Chris Carter confirmed the writer/director's involvement during an appearance on 'On The Coast with Gloria Macarenko', saying: "I just spoke to a young man, Ryan Coogler, who is going to remount ‘The X-Files’ with a diverse cast.

"So he’s got his work cut out for him, because we covered so much territory."
