A film based on the great Biblical story of Methuselah has been in the works for years and was originally slated for Tom Cruise will now star veteran actor Michael B. Jordan.

Danny Boyle will direct the film based on the Biblical story of a man who lived to be 969 years old. Sources say that has changed, and the creative team is taking a new approach with the plot.

Of course in our mind we see more of a “Book of Eli” type of film with Jordan since he has cemented his credibility as an elite dramatic actor and action star. We will of course stay on top of this developing story and keep you posted as we find out more!
