Denzel Washington’s first post-Oscar directing effort ‘Journal for Jordan’ stars Michael B. Jordan.
The Black Panther star Michael B. Jordan would star in the Denzel Washington directed film ‘Journal for Jordan’ for the Sony Pictures’.
The screenplay was authored by Oscar-nominated screenwriter Virgil Williams and is an adaptation of the 2009 best-selling memoir A Journal for Jordan: A Memoir of Love and Loss by Pulitzer-winning journalist Dana Canedy.
The book depicts Canedy’s relationship with First Sgt. Charles Monroe King, who was killed in Iraq in 2006 when their son Jordan was 7 months old. The soldier kept a journal of life lessons while he was deployed that he wanted to share with his newborn.
Journal for Jordan will be Washington’s first directing effort since the Oscar-winning film Fences, which released in 2016.
