Is it too soon to be making another Iraq war movie? Columbia Pictures doesn’t think so. They’ve tapped your favorite actor’s favorite black actor Denzel Washington to produce and possibly star in a movie inspired by the writings of a soldier killed in Iraq.
The movie, Journal for Jordan, is centered around a 200-page journal written by 1st Sgt. Charles Monroe King, for his unborn son. The soldier left words of wisdom to his son on how to live a proper life and to prepare him for a life without his father.
The 48-year-old soldier was killed in Baghdad in October, one month shy of finishing his tour of duty. He had left for the Middle East before his son was born.
