Between lush baecations with his new girlfriend, Lori Harvey, and sexy Alexa commercials, Autumn 2020 cover star Michael B. Jordan has teamed up with Jay-Z’s Roc Nation and Amazon Studios for a limited series about Muhammed Ali. According to reposts, the limited series will “really dive into the life of Muhammad Ali” and will be written by Josh Wakely and will have involvement from Ali’s estate.
In an interview with Deadline, Jordan revealed, “It’s a project where we’ve partnered with the estate and we’ll be able to tell this story with no red tape. It’s a limited series that will really dive into the life of Muhammad Ali. I’m not going to be too specific beyond that, but we’ll be able to get to know him in ways we haven’t had a chance to before. I’m really excited about it, as a boxing enthusiast and since this is the world I’ve been living in the past five or six years with the Creed franchise. To be able to honour Muhammad Ali and elaborate on his legacy is something I’m really excited about.”
Will details on the limited series still scarce, Jordan did confirm that he would not be playing a role in the drama, stating that, “We’re still putting the pieces together, but it something to look forward to in the future”. With Eli Goree playing the legendary boxer in the Regina King’s Golden Globe-nominated One Night in Miami we’re expecting big things from the casting.
