Michael B. Jordan doesn't stop working.

He's onboard to produce the war action-drama, The Liberators, thought his Outlier Society Productions, along with Safehouse Pictures

According to THR, the project, based on a spec script written by Madison Turner, "tells the story of the 761st regiment in World War II, an entirely African-American combat unit whose heroism led to the desegregation of the armed forces."

It is unknown at this point whether Jordan would star in the film as well.

Warner Bros. recently finalized a deal for the script package.

Outlier Society's Alana Mayo will also produce.

This is another project for Outlier, which also has in development Netflix's family sci-fi drama, Raising Dion, The Thomas Crown Affair remake starring Jordan, an untitled coming-of-age drama on OWN produced by Jordan and written by Tarell Alvin McCraney and a film adaptation of the YA novel The Stars Beneath Our Feat, which will be Jordan's directorial debut.
