Michael B. Jordan to produce and star in a “Methuselah” movie for Warner Bros.
Michael B.Jordan is set to produce and star in Warner Bros. movie “Methuselah” which is based on the Biblical story of a man who lived to be 969 years old.
The Warner Bros. movie was being developed for many years starting with an early script by Zach Dean in 2014. The movie experienced hiatus for some time as a number of writers and actors were constantly being replaced which includes Will Smith and Tom Cruise who was earlier introduced for the lead role.

Decades later, the movie finally decided to star Jordan as the lead actor in the movie recently scripted by Tony Gilroy.
Methuselah focuses on an ancient person who lived over 900 years. The movie focuses on the highly-skilled survivor who also possesses impressive intelligence as a result of his long life allowing him to accumulate more knowledge than the average human.
