Hunky actor Michael B. Jordan was spotted out in the Big Apple on March 9 to film scenes for the upcoming drama Journals for Jordan. The flick, which is based on Dana Canedy's memoir, is being directed by Denzel Washington, and the Creed lead will star opposite Chante Adams.
"In 2005, Dana Canedy’s fiancé, First Sergeant Charles Monroe King, began to write what would become a two-hundred-page journal for his son in case he did not make it home from the war in Iraq. He was killed by a roadside bomb on October 14, 2006. His son, Jordan, was seven months old," the book's description reads. "Inspired by his example, Dana was determined to preserve his memory for their son. A Journal for Jordan is a mother’s fiercely honest letter to her child about the parent he lost before he could even speak. It is also a father’s advice and prayers for the son he will never know."
In the movie, Jordan portrays King, while Adams will play Canedy. Keep scrolling to see the actor hard at work!
