Michael B. Jordan and director Jennifer Yuh Nelson are circling A Bittersweet Life, a remake of a 2005 Korean film.
The project is an action-thriller that follows a mobster who is ordered by his boss to kill one of his mistresses, but the man grows close to the woman and finds himself conflicted.
Nelson is known for her work in animation, having directed Kung Fu Panda 2 and Kung Fu Panda 3. She will make her live-action debut with Fox’s The Darkest Minds, with Amandla Stenberg is starring. Nelson is repped by WME and Hansen, Jacobson.
