Michael B. Jordan Starring in ‘Thomas Crown Affair’ Remake

“Creed’s” Michael B. Jordan is starring in MGM’s second remake of “The Thomas Crown Affair.”

The reboot is in early development stages and has no producer, writer or director attached. Jordan teamed with MGM on “Creed,” which was distributed by Warner Bros. and performed well with $172 million worldwide.

The original “Thomas Crown Affair,” directed by Norman Jewison, was released in 1968. Steve McQueen and Faye Dunaway starred in the film in which McQueen’s character masterminded a Boston bank robbery of $2.66 million without meeting any of the four thieves. Dunaway played the insurance investigator who realized that Crown had orchestrated the heist.

Director John McTiernan’s 1999 remake starred Pierce Brosnan and Rene Russo. The film was a solid hit, grossing $124 million worldwide.

Jordan came to Hollywood’s attention as a drug dealer in “The Wire” and in the indie drama “Fruitvale Station.” He starred as Adonis Creed, son of Apollo Creed, in “Creed.”

Jordan is repped by WME. The news was first reported by the Hollywood Reporter.
