“A Journal for Jordan” is written by Academy Award nominee Virgil Williams and based on Dana Canedy’s New York Times best-selling memoir, which was published in 2008. It tells the true story of Pulitzer Prize winner Canedy’s love affair with First Sergeant Charles Monroe King, who kept a journal full of poignant life lessons for their newborn son Jordan while he was deployed overseas. King was killed in Iraq in 2006 when Jordan was just seven months old.
Todd Black, along with his Escape Artists partners Jason Blumenthal and Steve Tisch, are producing the film with Washington and Jordan through his Outlier Society banner. Born Studios’ Aaron L. Gilbert is also producing, and Jason Cloth is executive producing via Creative Wealth Media.
