Denzel Washington Writes "Journal for Jordan"



Denzel Washington is about to produce a movie based on a New York Times-published first person essay titled "Journal for Jordan."

Still eager to keep going into producing thing, Oscar-winning actor Denzel Washington is on duty to produce a film feature entitled "Journal for Jordan", based on a first-person essay published in January in the New York Times of which rights the Escape Artists has secured.

The essay, written by Dana Canedy, describes a 200-page journal made by her fiance, First Sgt. Charles Monroe King who was perished in Baghdad only one month shy of finishing his tour of duty. It contains words of wisdom for their son about how to live a proper life and to prepare him for a life without his father. King himself never got the chance to meet his own child since he had left for the Middle East before he was born.

As for the big screen adaptation, it is expected that the project can have its way to land at Columbia Pictures, where Escape Artists has a first-look deal, with a possibility for Washington to also star in. Jonathan Burnham Schwartz has been hired to pen the script while Escape Artists' Todd Black, Jason Blumenthal, and Steve Tisch are all accompanying Washington as the film's producers.
