Denzel Washington has become increasingly involved behind the scenes over the past decade, producing several films and even wearing the director hat. His latest directorial work is for the upcoming holiday film, A Journal for Jordan, starring Michael B. Jordan and Chante Adams.
A Journal for Jordan is based on a true story about “First Sergeant Charles Monroe King (Jordan), a soldier deployed to Iraq who begins to keep a journal of love and advice for his infant son. Back at home, senior New York Times editor Dana Canedy (Chanté Adams) revisits the story of her unlikely, life-altering relationship with King and his enduring devotion to her and their child. A sweeping account of a once-in-a-lifetime love, the film is a powerful reminder of the importance of family,” as per the synopsis.

In another exclusive Two Bees TV interview with Snowfall‘s Damson Idris, the British actor revealed that he auditioned for Fences but didn’t get the part.
