The boys are back together again.
It was announced on Friday (Jan. 19) that award-winning filmmaker Ryan Coogler and actor Michael B. Jordan would reunite after eight years for a new film, Untitled, under Coogler’s Proximity Media. The original film is a secret project writte by Coogler who will direct with Jordan set to lead.
The upcoming film is an original idea by Coogler and the first spec script under his media company. The untitled project will be produced by Coogler-himself, Zinzi Coogler and Sev Ohanian. No official date on the film’s release.
Coogler and Jordan’s film journey began in 2013 with Jordan starring in Coogler’s debut major motion picture, Fruitvale Station. The two would go on to direct and star in the Black Panther and Creed franchise in the last decade. Michael B. Jordan would make a surprise cameo in the Wakanda Forever (2022).
Michael B. Jordan is set to direct Creed 4, which is currently in early development. The franchise also stars actress Tessa Thompson (“Thor: Love & Thunder). Michael is also set to star in the I Am Legend sequel with Will Smith.
While the untitled film will be Coogler’s next release, he is also developing a Wakanda Forever-based television series for Disney/Marvel Cinematic Universe, and rumors third installment in the Black Panther franchise.
Michael B. Jordan visited Hot 97 last March, where he spoke on his Newark, New Jersey upbringing, making I Am Legend 2 with Will Smith, black films, and more with Ebro, Laura Stylez, and Peter Rosenberg.
