Ryan Coogler and Michael B. Jordan are teaming up for the fourth time for a new movie called Wrong Answer according to The Wrap. The pair have previously worked on Fruitvale Station, Creed, and Black Panther. Comic writer Ta-Nehisi Coates is attached to write the script.
Based on a 2014 New Yorker article by Rachel Aviv the film will see Jordan play Damany Lewis, a math teacher at Atlanta’s Parks Middle School who became involved in a plan to manipulate his underprivileged students’ standardized test scores so the school would not be shut down under George W. Bush’s No Child Left Behind Act. The scheme resulted in 11 educators being convicted on racketeering charges.
There is currently no release date or other cast members announced. However, Jordan and Coogler have been consistent in delivering award worthy movies and performances. They obviously work well together and bringing in Coates just makes it even better.
Black Panther will be released on February 16, 2018 with Coogler directing and Jordan as villain
