Ryan Coogler, director and co-writer of New Line Cinema’s Creed, has become the first Warner Bros. Creative Talent Ambassador.  The news comes as Warner Bros. Creative Talent began its third season, following two successful years since the program’s launch. 

Coogler, 29, was supported early in his career by the Time Warner Foundation in partnership with Sundance Institute, which enabled him to develop his first feature film, Fruitvale Station.

Warner Bros. Creative Talent season three will receive funding and unique opportunities as part of a multi-layered, nationwide investment, which encompasses scholarships at some of the U.K.’s most respected higher education institutions, apprenticeships and training placements.
