Jon Watts, the director behind the latest Spider-Man movies, is teaming up with another star from the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Watts is in negotiations to direct Black Panther‘s Michael B. Jordan in the fantasy film Methuselah, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed.
The film will see Jordan play a man who has managed to stay alive for hundreds of years. Methuselah has been in development at Warner Bros. for a while, with Tom Cruise at one point interested in the title role.
Jordan’s Outlier Society, which has a first-look deal with the studio, will produce, along with Heyday’s David Heyman and Jeffrey Clifford.
Watts will next be in theaters with July’s Spider-Man: Homecoming sequel, Far From Home. He is repped by CAA and Bloom Hergott.
