Michael B. Jordan & Jaimie Foxx Team Up For New Film “Just Mercy”

Michael B. Jordan (“Black Panther,” “Creed,” “Creed II”) and Oscar winners Jamie Foxx (“Ray,” “Baby Driver,” “Django: Unchained”) and Brie Larson (“Room,” “The Glass Castle,” “Captain Marvel”) star in the up and coming film “Just Mercy” which is based on the autobiography of World-renowned civil rights defense attorney Bryan Stevenson works to free a wrongly condemned death row prisoner.

Releasing in theaters nationwide on January 10, 2020, this inspiring drama brings one of the most important stories of our time to the big screen. Award-winning filmmaker Destin Daniel Cretton (“The Glass Castle,” “Short Term 12”) directed the film from a screenplay he co-wrote, based on the award-winning nonfiction bestseller by Bryan Stevenson.

Produced by Michael B. Jordan, this powerful and thought-provoking film follows young lawyer Bryan Stevenson (Jordan) and his history-making battle for justice. After graduating from Harvard, Bryan might have had his pick of lucrative jobs. Instead, he heads to Alabama to defend those wrongly condemned, with the support of local advocate Eva Ansley (Larson).

 

 

One of his first, and most incendiary, cases is that of Walter McMillian (Foxx,) who, in 1987, was sentenced to die for the notorious murder of an 18-year-old girl, despite a preponderance of evidence proving his innocence and the fact that the only testimony against him came from a criminal with a motive to lie. In the years that follow, Bryan becomes embroiled in a labyrinth of legal and political maneuverings and overt and unabashed racism as he fights for Walter, and others like him, with the odds-and the system-stacked against them.

In September of 2019, Michael B. Jordan and Jamie Foxx appeared on The Tonight’s Show with Jimmy Fallon to discuss teaming up for the coming film which was inspired by the true story of Bryan Stevenson. Watch as they break down how they handled a particularly dramatic emotional courtroom scene to bring the injustice of Walter McMillian to life.

“Just Mercy” will be in theaters nationwide on January 10, 2020 and distributed worldwide by Warner Bros. Pictures. (This film has been rated PG-13 for thematic content, including some racial epithets.)
