The studio has been working on the film for many years with Will Smith and Tom Cruise interested in the project. Zach Dean wrote an early script after coming on board in 2014. The latest draft is written by Tony Gilroy.

The story centres on the longest-living figure in the Bible, Methuselah, who is the son of Enoch.

Jordan is also set to star in and produce the Denzel Washington-directed memoir Journal for Jordan and is currently busy with the pre-production on the Tom Clancy adaptation Without Remorse. The actor is also going to collaborate with Kong: Skull Island director Jordan Vogt-Roberts for an untitled monster film. However, it is yet not clear whether Jordan features in the film.

His other projects include Lionsgate's film adaptation of assassin story The Silver Bearwhich will be directed by Gerard McMurray. The film will mark the reunion of the director-actor duo after the 2013 breakout drama Fruitvale Station, produced by McMurray.
