Actor Michael B. Jordan is set to make his directorial debut on a film adaptation of the David Barclay Moore novel “The Stars Beneath Our Feet” for Endeavor Content.
The story follows a young African American boy who tries to lead a safe life through the projects of Harlem after his brother’s death. Jordan will direct and produce the project, while Moore will write the script and executive produce.
Jordan says in a statement: “Directing has been an area I’ve wanted to explore for some time now. ‘The Stars Beneath Our Feet’ tells a story that really spoke to me, and I’m looking forward to jumping behind the camera. I’ve had the opportunity to work with some very smart and talented directors and it inspired me to take on this new challenge.”
Jordan will next be seen in “Black Panther,” “Fahrenheit 451” and the “Creed” sequel.
