More from Deadline

Coogler is directing from his own script and will also produce alongside Zinzi Coogler and Sev Ohanian. The film’s executive producers are two-time Oscar-winning composer Ludwig Göransson, Rebecca Cho, and Will Greenfield.

Bringing Jordan and Coogler back together following their collaboration on the Creed and Black Panther franchises and the acclaimed Sundance drama Fruitvale Station, the film is the second from the collaborators that Warner Bros Film Group co-chairs and CEOs Mike De Luca and Pam Abdy have championed, having greenlighted the box office hit Creed III during their time at MGM. Pic’s slated for release in theaters on March 7, 2025.

Best known for starring opposite Brad Pitt and Margot Robbie, in the role of Lady Fay Zhu, in Damien Chazelle’s Academy Award-nominated Old Hollywood epic Babylon, Li was most recently announced to be starring opposite Ethan Embry in the new genre-bender Alma and the Wolf from director Michael Patrick Jann (Drop Dead Gorgeous) and Republic Pictures. Breaking out on Broadway in the Lincoln Center revival of South Pacific, Li has also been seen in films like Ricki and the Flash and Chinese Puzzle. Most recently seen on the TV side in Peacock’s limited series Based on a True Story, her other small screen credits include Sex/Life, Evil, Florida Man, Why Women Kill, The Exorcist, Quantico, Blindspot and Damages, to name just a few.

Li is represented by Gersh, Authentic Talent and Literary Management, and Jackoway Austen Tyerman.
