Michael B. Jordan Lands Lead in HBO’s ‘Fahrenheit 451’
While getting in character for his role in the much anticipated 2018 release of Marvel’s Black Panther, Michael B. Jordan scored a lead in HBO’s Fahrenheit 451.
The film is an adaptation of Ray Bradbury’s 1953 book of the same and cast Jordan as a lead alongside Michael Shannon. As the production is still in development, details regarding the plot line have been released.
Bradbury’s sci-fi novel centers on a future where media is an opiate, history is outlawed and “firemen” burn books. HBO’s vision doesn’t seem to be straying far from the books’ origin. Jordan stars as Montag, a young firemen who abandons his world, battles his mentor and struggles to find his way back to humanity.
Upping his producer credits, the Creed star will also serve as an executive producer via his Outlier Productions company, which launched in 2016 and inked a multiyear first-look film and TV production deal with Skydance Media.
A release date for Fahrenheit 451 hasn’t been announced.
