March 26 (UPI) -- Michael B. Jordan has signed on to star in and produce Methuselah at Warner Bros., a drama film about an ageless man.
Methuselah is based on the biblical story of a man who lived to be 969 years old. The character is referenced in the Book of Genesis as the son of Enoch who lived to be 365 years old.
The film will follow Jordan as the title character who manages to survive for hundreds of years without showing any signs of aging. Methuselah will also obtain a vast, intellectual knowledge spanning different languages along the way.
Jordan is producing through his Outlier Society Productions banner alongside David Heyman and Jeffrey Clifford. The actor and Outlier Society Productions previously signed a first-look deal with Warner Bros. for films and Amazon for television projects.
Jordan is also set to star in and produce The Silver Bear, a film adaptation of Derek Haas' novel of the same name about a hitman named Columbus.
