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.
