“Creed” star Michael B. Jordan is in talks for his next MGM project, “The Thomas Crown Affair.” According to Deadline, MGM wants him to star in the remake of the 1968 film.

Directed by Norman Jewison, the original film starred Steve McQueen in the titular role. “The Thomas Crown Affair” follows Crown, a bank executive who believes he pulled off the perfect multi-million dollar heist, as he clashes with an insurance investigator named Vicki Anderson (played by Faye Dunaway). The movie was also remade in 1999 with Pierce Brosnan and Rene Russo.

It is unclear who Jordan would play in the project at this time, though all signs point to Crown.

Jordan is fresh off his success in “Creed,” though he is also known for his roles in “Chronicle,” “The Wire” and “Friday Night Lights.”
