Jonathan Majors has found his next project in the adaptation of Walter Mosley’s novel The Man In My Basement. Nadia Latif will make her directorial debut on the film.
Majors will star in as well as executive produce under his Tall Street Productions banner.
The novel follows Charles Blakey, an African American man living in Sag Harbor, who is stuck in a rut, out of luck and about to lose his ancestral home when a peculiar white businessman with a European accent offers to rent his basement for the summer. He’ll pay $50,000. This lucrative proposition leads Charles down a terrifying path that takes him to the heart of race, history and the root of all evil. Mosley adapted the novel with Latif.
Protagonist Pictures will fully finance and cameras are expected to roll in the fall.
Ahead of this project Mjaors will star in the Peyton Reed-directed Ant-Man And The Wasp: Quantumania, playing Kang the Conqueror. He also will star the Michael B. Jordan-directed Creed III, starring as Adonis Creed’s ring nemesis — the project is currently in production. Majors will next be seen starring as U.S. Navy fighter pilot Jesse Brown in the Black Label Media war epic Devotion. This summer he begins production on Magazine Dreams, playing an amateur bodybuilder who struggles to find human connection in an exploration of celebrity and violence.
