BLACK PANTHER

Last fall MICHAEL B. JORDAN (Erik Killmonger) wrapped production on HBO Films' adaptation of "Fahrenheit 451." Jordan, who also serves as an executive producer, stars opposite Michael Shannon. Directed by Ramin Bahrani, the film is expected to be released later this spring.

Recently, Jordan starred in Ryan Coogler's "Creed," alongside Sylvester Stallone and Tessa Thompson for MGM and Warner Brothers Pictures. Among the many accolades that the film received, Jordan was awarded the NAACP Image Award for Outstanding Actor in a Motion Picture and the NAACP's Entertainer of the Year Award. It was recently announced that he will return for a sequel, for which he will also serve as an executive producer. "Creed 2" is slated to be released on November 21, 2018.

Later this year, Jordan will star in "Just Mercy" for Broad Green Pictures, which is based on the book by Bryan Stevenson. This adaptation will be directed and produced by Destin Crettin and Gil Netter, respectively. It will be based on Stevenson's true story of being young lawyer who founded the Equal Justice Initiative.

It was recently announced that he will star in "A Bittersweet Life" for Twentieth Century Fox. The film will be directed by Jennifer Yuh Nelson and will be an action-thriller remake of the cult classic 2005 Korean film. Additionally, Jordan is scheduled to reunite with Ryan Coogler on "Wrong Answer," which will tell the true story of how Atlanta high school educators participated in an intricate, systemic standardized-test cheating scandal in 2013. The film is scheduled to be released by New Regency and Plan B.

On the production side, Jordan recently developed Outlier Society Productions, which he launched in 2016 with a multiyear first-look deal with Skydance Media. It is through Outlier Society Productions that Jordan is slated to make his feature film directorial debut and produce the film adaptation of the David Barclay Moore novel "The Stars Beneath Our Feet." He is also slated to executive produce a forthcoming untitled drama series for the Oprah Winfrey Network from "Moonlight" writer Tarell Alvin McCraney that will center around a 14-year-old prodigy who must choose between the streets that raised him or the higher education that may offer him a way out.

It was recently announced that Jordan will executive produce the animated Skydance project "Super Day Care." He will also executive produce the sci-fi family drama "Raising Dion" for Netflix and is attached to star in and produce a reboot of "The Thomas Crown Affair" for MGM.

Jordan's first leading film role was when he starred as Oscar Grant in Coogler's award-winning "Fruitvale Station." The film also starred Octavia Spencer and Melonie Diaz and was produced by Forest Whitaker. The picture was chosen as one of the Top Ten Films at the 2013 National Board of Review Awards, where Jordan took home the award for Breakthrough Actor. On behalf of the film, Jordan also won the 2013 Gotham Award for Breakthrough Actor and was nominated for an Independent Spirit Award for Best Lead Actor.

Other film credits include Twentieth Century Fox's "Fantastic Four," Twentieth Century Fox's box- office hit "Chronicle," Focus Films' "That Awkward Moment" and the George Lucas-produced film "Redtails." Jordan also has starred in three critically acclaimed television dramas: "The Wire," "Friday Night Lights" and NBC's "Parenthood."

Outside of the acting sphere, Jordan is currently engaged in branding partnerships with Nike, Piaget, AT&T, Brisk Creators Classic and Marvel Contest of Champions. He is also the voice of Acura. Additionally, Jordan is actively involved with Lupus LA, which raises awareness and funds for local Los Angeles Lupus patient programs, local rheumatology fellowships and research projects for their national research partner, the Lupus Research Alliance.
