He is set to star in and produce Lionsgate’s film adaptation of The Silver Bear.

The Creed star is producing through his own Outlier Society, Haas is among a team of executive producers under Nickel City Pictures.

The suspense novel follows the tale of hitman Columbus who is tasked with killing presidential candidate Abe Man.

The tome is part one of three, which means there is the potential for the movie to become a franchise.

Meanwhile, Jordan recently signed up is to play the Tom Clancy character John Clark in a new film series.

The 31-year-old actor has been approached by Paramount to play the hero in two upcoming movies, with an origin story planned for an adaptation of Without Remorse and a sequel centered on Rainbow Six. He is set to produce the project alongside Akiva Goldsman, Josh Appelbaum and Andre Nemec.

The studio has spent years trying to get movie adaptations off the ground, with Ryan Reynolds and Chris McQuarrie having previously been linked to the project.

Jordan’s schedule continues to grow after the Hollywood star admitted he wanted to spend more time behind the camera in the coming years.
