Michael B. Jordan and Jonathan Majors Confirm Plan for Future Projects
For movie fans who loved seeing Michael B. Jordan and Jonathan Majors together on the big screen in Creed III, we have good news! The duo is planning to do another project together.
Jordan and Majors have made it no secret how much they enjoyed working together during the filming of Creed III, in which Jordan not only starred as Adonis Creed – but he also directed the flick.
While doing press for the film, the pair were asked by New York Times if they plan on collaborating again, to which Jordan replied, “We plan on it.”
“De Niro and Pacino,” Majors, who plays Damian Anderson in the film, added.
“We’re excited about that. And I have those conversations with him. Acting is such a solo journey, where you’re fighting for your place on that call sheet for such a long time,” Jordan adds. “So when you’ve got somebody that doesn’t care as much about that stuff, it’s like, ‘Let’s go. How much damage can we do together?'”
“All of it,” Majors replies.
As a first-time director, Jordan also admitted that he did put a great deal of pressure on himself, including when it came to pitching Majors the role.
“I was all in my head, like, ‘OK, what are the things I would want to hear? This dude can do a million different things right now. What’s going to make him take a chance on this actor-director who hasn’t directed [anything]?’,” Jordan confesses. “I knew I had to be truthful about what this project means to me and I wanted to make sure he knew.”
However, after signing onto the project, Major notes that Jordan’s perception of his performance was the most important thing to him.
“I care most about what he thinks.” Major states.
