Jamie Foxx is in negotiations to join Michael B. Jordan in the courtroom drama “Just Mercy” at Warner Bros. Pictures.
The true story tale follows Bryan Stevenson (Jordan), a gifted young lawyer fighting for equal justice in a flawed legal system. Foxx would play the death row inmate Jordan is defending.
“Short Term 12” director Destin Cretton will direct and co-wrote the script with Andrew Lanham. Jordan and Gil Netter will produce. Foxx was recently tapped to star in Todd McFarlane’s “Spawn” film.
