Michael B. Jordan will star in the Dark Horse Comics adaptation
Tracking Board brings word that Fantastic Four‘s Michael B. Jordan is jumping to another comic book-based franchise with MGM’s Blood Brothers. Written by Mike Gagerman and Andrew Waller with art by Evan Shaner, Blood Brothers is officially described as follows:
“After a century of friendship, smoking opium with Genghis Khan and having orgies in Michelangelo’s studio, two inseparable vampire buddies are on the verge of splitting up. Terrible timing, as an apocalypse-obsessed villain is plotting an end to humanity. Looks like Nick and Tree, immortal best buds getting by as bail bondsmen, are humanity’s last hope . . . Can they put their baggage aside long enough to save the world?”
Mike Richardson of Dark Horse Entertainment will produce the film which has previously been drafted by Etan Cohen (Men in Black 3, Tropic Thunder) with another draft by Jurassic World duo Colin Trevorrow and Derek Connolly. The outlet notes that MGM is eager to have a different take completed by a new writer/director, hoping to have a more grounded take in the vein of Lethal Weapon and 48 Hours.
Michael B. Jordan can next be seen in the Rocky spin-off Creed, which debuts in theaters on November 25.
