Michael B. Jordan Applies His Supervillain Experience By Becoming A Director

Michael B. Jordan is one of the hottest actors on screen right now, with his recent success in film coming after a standout career on television. But according to Deadline, he’s taking on a new role behind the camera. Jordan will direct a film adaptation of David Barclay Moore‘s bestselling novel The Stars Beneath Our Feet, recently acquired by Endeavor Content.

The book follows a young Harlem boy coping with the death of his older brother in a gangland shooting. Helping him are two huge bags of Legos, which he uses to build his own city at the community center. But while he puts the blocks together to escape the world around him, he is also reconstructing the pieces of his broken life.

Jordan is adding his directing duties to an extremely busy schedule. He will be re-teaming with friend and frequent collaborator Ryan Coogler, who worked with Jordan on Fruitvale Station, Creed, and Black Panther, in a film tentatively titles Wrong Answer based on the Atlanta schools cheating scandal. He will also star in the Sylvester Stallone directed Creed sequel. A role in a remake of The Thomas Crown Affair is also in the works. Jordan will be making his return to the small screen as well, as the star of HBO’s Fahrenheit 451 and his own production, Raising Dion, for Netflix.

The Stars Beneath Our Feet will be written and produced by the book’s author who studied writing at Iowa State and film at Howard University. The Stars Beneath Our Feet is Moore’s debut novel.
