BREAKING: MGM wants more of its Creed star Michael B. Jordan. The company has attached him to star in a remake of The Thomas Crown Affair, the 1968 Norman Jewison-directed film that starred Steve McQueen and Faye Dunaway. It’s early days, but what a step up for Jordan, who has grown up onscreen in The Wire and Friday Night Lights, and really came of age in the Ryan Coogler hit boxing film opposite Sylvester Stallone.
Thomas Crown Affair got a remake back in 1999, one that starred Pierce Brosnan and Rene Russo. A debonair, adventuresome bank executive believes he has pulled off the perfect multimillion-dollar heist, only to match wits with a sexy insurance investigator who will do anything to get her man.
