EXCLUSIVE: Robert Wisdom, Johnny M. Wu and newcomer Jalon Christian have joined Michael B. Jordan and Chante Adams in Sony’s A Journal For Jordan, directed by Denzel Washington.
Written by Academy Award nominee Virgil Williams, the film is based on Dana Canedy’s best-selling memoir, which was published in 2008.
Todd Black, along with his Escape Artists partners Jason Blumenthal and Steve Tisch, are producing along with Washington and Jordan, who will produce through his Outlier Society banner. BRON Studios’ Aaron L. Gilbert is also producing. Jason Cloth is executive producing via Creative Wealth Media.
The film tells the true story of Pulitzer Prize winning journalist Canedy’s love affair with First Sergeant Charles Monroe King. King kept a journal full of poignant life lessons for their newborn son Jordan while deployed overseas. He was killed in Iraq in 2006 when Jordan was just seven months old, but his spirit lives on in his messages of love to Dana and Jordan.
