raising dion trailer

Four years ago, writer Dennis Liu published the comic book Raising Dion, which told the story of a single black mother raising a son who begins to develop superpowers. A year later, Liu turned that comic book into a short film that caught the eye of Michael B. Jordan, himself a silver screen superhero in Fantastic Four (and eventual supervillain in Black Panther). Jordan acquired the rights to the short to develop into a Netflix series, which is finally hitting the streaming platform next month.

Jordan produces and stars in Raising Dion as the father of the titular Dion, who disappears shortly before his son discovers his superpowers. Watch the Raising Dion trailer below.

Without Remorse cast Bell Turner-Smith

Update: Variety reports that Queen and Slim star Jodie Turner-Smith has also been added to the cast. She’ll play Karen Greer, “a possible love interest to Jordan’s character.” In the Tom Clancy literary universe, Admiral Greer (played by James Earl Jones in three movies and Wendell Pierce in Amazon’s Jack Ryan series) recruited both Jack Ryan and John Clark/John Kelly. Karen Greer could be a relative, although she doesn’t appear in the books or previous movie/TV adaptations. Our original story from September 17 continues below.

While most of us would probably rather forget that Fox’s 2015 Fantastic Four film exists, we’re about to see two of that movie’s cast members reunite. Former Ben Grimm/The Thing actor Jamie Bell is the latest to join the Without Remorse cast, meeting up with former Johnny Storm/The Human Torch actor Michael B. Jordan, who’s leading the new spy thriller for Paramount. Learn about Bell’s role in the upcoming film below. Read More »

Michael B. Jordan Warner Bros. Deal

When I interviewed the directors of the under-seen and underrated science fiction film Kin, they told me a story about Michael B. Jordan, who served as a producer on the project. “Michael’s the guy that goes up for and steals all the white roles; he prides himself on it, as he should,” director Josh Baker explained. In short, the Black Panther and Creed star is all about disrupting the Hollywood norms, where the default lead is always a white guy.

And now, Jordan has made a deal with a major Hollywood studio to keep doing what he does. He has signed a first-look deal with Warner Bros., which means more Michael B. Jordan on the big screen. Sometimes, Hollywood gets things right.
