Michael B. Jordan teamar upp med Roc Nation och Amazon för serie om Muhammad Ali

“This is an opportunity to go beyond the ring…”



Michael B. Jordan och hans produktionsbolag Outlier Society har teamat upp med Roc Nation och Amazon för en så kallad “begränsad serie” om Muhammad Ali. Här ska man djupdyka i boxningsikonens liv och dessutom ha fått med sig hans dödsbo på tåget.


“It’s an incredible honor and I bring tons of respect to it. It’s a healthy weight to carry, to be able to tell the story of Muhammad Ali. It’s called The Greatest right now and we’re partnered with Roc Nation on the music side of things. 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 honor Muhammad Ali and elaborate on his legacy is something I’m really excited about, and I know Jen [Salke, Amazon Studios Head] and Amazon are as well”, säger Jordan i en intervju med Deadline.


Än så länge är informationen knapphändig, men “Creed”-skådisen bekräftade att han själv inte kommer att spela Ali.


“This is character driven and compelling. People know Muhammad Ali from his boxing days, but this is an opportunity to go beyond the ring, and more into the man. It’s going to give more of a 360 degree view of who he was. And no, I’m not playing that guy, I can say that for sure, and we are still in early stages here and can’t say too much. We are still putting the pieces together, but it feels like something to look forward to in the future.”


Håll utkik för mer information framöver! Michael B. Jordan är även aktuell med Tom Clancy’s “Without Remorse” som kommer till Amazon Prime den 30 april.
