Interviews: Michael B. Jordan talks about directing his first film and acting in Black Panther and Creed 2

Movies After Dark

Michael B. Jordan spoke to Deadline about starring in Black Panther, Creed 2 and his directing of The Stars Beneath Our Feet. After being asked about how it was to direct his first film, Jordan had this to say:

“You’re constantly addressing something that needs to be done. You’re constantly trying to tweak things in order to find that perfect frame, that perfect shot, the perfect performance, the perfect lighting. I think coverage is the biggest thing also, at least for me. Just making sure you have enough material so when you actually get to post you could have options to cut around things. I think those are the two biggest things, two biggest surprises — time and coverage.”
