While steadily climbing the ranks of Hollywood’s A-List, Michael B. Jordan has also found time to carve out the beginnings of a second career in the industry, producing. As of now, Jordan has been attached to produce a number of projects, however, the most high profile of all of the projects is ‘Fahrenheit 451’ at HBO.
‘Fahrenheit 451’ is of course based on the classic novel by Ray Bradbury, that centers around a dystopian society and it’s law that all books shall burn in order to maintain complete control. This isn’t the first time the book has been adapted to film, though it is the first time in over 50 years.
The adaptation also stars Michael Shannon, Sofia Boutella and Laura Harrier. The film is directed by Ramin Bahrani who has been behind some of the most underrated films of the past decade such as ’99 Homes’ which also starred Michael Shannon.
We’ve attached the trailer and official synopsis for ‘Fahrenheit 451’ below.
‘HBO Films presents Fahrenheit 451. In a terrifying care-free future, a young man, Guy Montag, whose job as a fireman is to burn all books, questions his actions after meeting a young girl…and begins to rebel against society.’ Courtesy of HBO
