“Spider-Man: Homecoming” director Jon Watts is in talks to helm Michael B Jordan-starrer “Methuselah” for Warner Bros., according to Hollywood Reporter.

Jordan is set to star in the film as a man who has managed to stay alive for hundreds of years, the longest of all figures in the Bible. The Biblical story is referenced in the Book of Genesis, with Methuselah being the son of Enoch.

Jordan has been riding high the past few years, after being in recent hits such as Black Panther Creed, and it sequel Creed II.

Watts of course previously directed “Spider-Man: Homecoming” and as well as its upcoming sequel, Spider-Man: Far from Home, set for release this summer. He also directed Cop Car and the thriller Clown.

There’s not a lot of details about the film, although it is known that Tom Cruise was once previously attached in the title role.
