The powerhouse duo, along with director Destin Daniel Cretton and Bryan Stevenson screened a first look at CAA’s annual Amplify summit — In his review of Bryan Stevenson’s 2014 Bestseller "Just Mercy," New York Times critic Ted Conover writes: “You don’t have to read too long to start cheering for this man. . . . The message of this book . . . is that evil can be overcome, a difference can be made. Just Mercy will make you upset and it will make you hopeful.”

Jordan stands for (I make no apologies), I thought I'd pass along another reminder reinforcing just how awesome Mr. Jordan is, and more notably, a reminder that production for his next feature film is currently underway.
