Powerhouse Duo Returns: Ryan Coogler & Michael B. Jordan’s Untitled Movie Set for March 2025

Ryan Coogler and Michael B. Jordan’s secretive project has just gotten a bit more concrete.

Warner Bros. has revealed the writer/director and his longtime collaborator’s new film will be coming to theaters near you on March 7, 2025. The project is big enough to warrant screenings in IMAX, no less.

Warner Bros. is describing Coogler’s latest as an event film, which isn’t surprising given the fact that this is the man who has delivered Black Panther and Black Panther: Wakanda Forever. Another of Coogler’s frequent collaborators, Oscar-winning composer Ludwig Göransson, who has nabbed the award for his recent work in Oppenheimer and Coogler’s Black Panther, will executive produce alongside Rebecca Cho and Will Greenfield

Coogler wrote the script for the new project and will direct as well as produce through his company, Proximity Media, alongside Zinzi Coogler and Sev Ohanian. Warner Bros. eventually landed the project after three weeks of interest from several studios, topping Universal in the final round. The film reunites Coogler and Jordan yet again, who first broke out with Coogler’s star-making 2013 directorial debut Fruitvale Station, which he wrote on spec. This time around, studios were vying for a chance to work with the star auteur on his latest. Jordan has had a role in all of Coogler’s films, including leading his Rocky franchise reboot Creed in 2015 and starring as the villain Erik Killmonger in both of Coogler’s world-beating Black Panther films.

Reports suggest that Coogler and Jordan are ready to start filming soon in New Orleans. Coogler’s project is a brand new concept and reportedly has franchise potential of its own. The details of the script are being guarded, but the bits that have been revealed thus far describe a possible period thriller with anime influences (Coogler’s a huge fan) and a connection to the undead.
