The 'Black Panther' star is reported to be in talks for a starring role in the film project to be directed by the 'Fences' actor and written by 'Mudbound' scribe Virgin Williams.
Michael B. Jordan is reportedly in talks to star in Denzel Washington's next directorial effort, "Journal for Jordan".
The film will be based on the relationship between Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Dana Canedy and First Sergeant Charles Monroe King while he was deployed overseas in Iraq.
King kept a journal for their newborn son Jordan, but Charles was killed in 2006 when the baby was seven months old.
The movie will be produced by the "Black Panther" and "Creed" star for his Outlier Society company, while Washington will also produce alongside Todd Black, Jason Blumenthal, and Steve Tisch.
"Mudbound" screenwriter Virgin Williams will pen the script.
