Michael B. Jordan Suggested for Upcoming 'Star Wars' Spinoff
Michael B. Jordan chats with a friend after a meeting on Thursday (May 19) in Beverly Hills, Calif.
The 29-year-old actor is being suggested to appear in an upcoming Star Wars spinoff movie by filmmaker Christopher McQuarrie, who is best known for his work on the latest Mission: Impossible movies.
Christopher did uncredited rewrite work on the upcoming movie Rogue One: A Star Wars Story and a fan tweeted to him asking if he would ever write a film in the franchise on his own.
“When they give me @michaelb4jordan and the Millennium Falcon. #YoungLando,” Christopher replied.
In case you don’t know, Lando Calrissian is the role originated by Billy Dee Williams!
