Black Panther fans rejoice! Not only were we blessed with news that the second movie is officially set for 2022 release, but we also just learned that MICHAEL B. JORDAN will be producing an adaptation of Kingdom of Souls by Rena Barron!

In this story, we meet the tenacious and compelling Arrah, who hails from a family of witchdoctors. She yearns for powers of her own, and as a deadly last resort, she trades years of her life for scraps of magic. Then, as the children in her kingdom begin to disappear, Arrah becomes determined to find the culprit. Only… she finds something far worse. A Demon King is stirring. And in order to stop it, Arrah might have to pay the ultimate price.

In this electrifying deal for a debut author, Warner Bros. has just acquired this first installment in the trilogy! Outlier Society’s Michael B. Jordan and Alana Mayo are producing with Pouya Shahbazian. Misan Sagay is attached to write the screenplay.

There’s no word yet on a date, but you can read the announcement right now, and scroll down for some quick hits!
