Chanté Adams Cast As Co-Lead With Michael B. Jordan In Denzel Washington's 'Journal For Jordan'

Chanté Adams has been tapped to be the c0-lead in Denzel Washington's Journal for Jordan, which also stars Michael B. Jordan. Deadline first broke this news.

With Washington as the director, the script was written by Virgil Wiliams, based on  Dana Canedy’s New York Times best-selling memoir, which was published in 2008. Sony is the studio.

It is based on a true story, centering on "Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Canedy’s love affair with First Sergeant Charles Monroe King. King kept a journal full of poignant life lessons for their newborn son, Jordan, while deployed overseas. He was killed in Iraq in 2006 when Jordan was just seven months old, but his spirit lives on in his messages of love to Dana and Jordan."

Escape Artists' Todd Black, Jason Blumenthal and Steve Tisch are producing with Washington and Jordan. BRON Studios' Aaron L. Gilbert is also a producer, and Jason Cloth is an executive producer through Creaative Wealth Medi

Todd Black, along with his Escape Artists partners Jason Blumenthal and Steve Tisch, are producing along with Washington and Jordan, who will produce through his Outlier Society banner. BRON Studios’ Aaron L. Gilbert is also producing. Jason Cloth is executive producing via Creative Wealth Media.

Adams will play Canedy. The actress, who was seen on the big screen earlier this year in The Photograph with Issa Rae and Lakeith Staanfield, can currently be seen in NEON and Hulu's Bad Hair. She is also one of the leads of Amazon's A League of Their Own adaptation.
