Ryan Coogler And Michael B. Jordan Team Up For “Wrong Answer” Film
Two friends who’ve partnered in film are collaborating on yet another project. “Creed”/”Fruitvale Station” director Ryan Coogler and Michael “Bae” Jordan are reuniting on “Wrong Answer” the true story about the 2013 Atlanta school cheating scandal.
Not only are Michael and Ryan part of the film, according to Deadline Ta-Nehisi Coates is penning the script. The script will be based on a 2014 The New Yorker article by Rachel Aviv that tells the story of 11 educators who were convicted of racketeering.
Michael has a starring role in the film. He’ll play Damany Lewis, a math teacher who got caught up in the scandal for non-nefarious reasons.
Lewis who was the school’s football, soccer and softball coach and chess club founder, reportedly upped student’s test scores to keep the school from being closed under George Bush’s “No Child Left Behind” program.
Coogler and Michael are of course also working together on Marvel Studios’ “Black Panther” that stars Chadwick Boseman as the Wakandan superhero and Michael as a villain.
