The Rocky spin-off Creed will be shooting tonight at the home of Everton, Goodison Park.
The football club revealed via Twitter that something for the movie will be shot during half-time of the Everton v West Brom game.
Professional boxer Tony Bellew, who joined the Creed cast as Pretty Boy Porter, sent a message to the football fans attending the game via Everton’s official website.
“I would like you to stay in your seats at half-time and keep any eye on the big screens for a very special guest to make a welcome return to Goodison Park. Be sure you make as much noise as possible – go absolutely nuts at half-time – to help us create a brilliant atmosphere. I have seen firsthand what kind of noise Evertonians create – it will be perfect for the scene.”

Sylvester Stallone, who won’t be at the game tonight, is a fan of Everton and was last seen at Goodison Park in 2007.
Raised in an upper-crust home thanks to the ring riches earned by his grandfather, Apollo Creed, the young man doesn’t have to box and his family doesn’t want him to. Yet, he has the natural instinct and gifts and potential that made his grandfather the heavyweight champion until Rocky Balboa took his crown in 1979′s Rocky II. Creed’s grandson needs a mentor and turns to Balboa, who is out of boxing completely and not eager to return.
Creed is directed by Ryan Coogler (Fruitvale Station) and will see Stallone reprise his role as Rocky Balboa for the seventh time in his career alongside Michael B. Jordan (Fantastic Four).
