Acting, modeling, and now producing? Michael B. Jordan is definitely all about his money in 2018.
It was announced on Monday (March 19) that the actor will be producing a WWII drama called The Liberators.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the film will be based on the true story of the 761st Tank Batalion, an African-American armored unit under the command of General George S. Patton. Jordan has starred in action-packed movies such as Black Panther, Creed, and Fruitvale Station, so this type of film is right up his alley.
Producing shouldn’t be too hard for Jordan, as he already has some experience behind the camera. He has acted as an executive producer for the upcoming film Fahrenheit 451 and a new Netflix series Raising Don, set to air next year. Jordan will also be seen on screen in both of these productions, but there has been no word on an appearance in The Liberators.
Earlier this month, Jordan pledged to adopt the “Inclusion Rider” for all projects he produces, so we can expect he will be true to his word with the production of The Liberators. This would mean that people of color, people with disabilities, and people of any marginalized group will be represented.
So far, there is no set release date for the film.
