Just Mercy First Look: Michael B. Jordan Tries to Save Jamie Foxx's Life as He Sits on Death Row

Michael B. Jordan’s next role might just be his most emotional one yet. The Creed actor plays Harvard-educated lawyer Bryan Stevenson for his next movie, Just Mercy. The drama follows the real-life story of Stevenson, who went to Alabama to help defend those who are wrongly condemned in the racially-charged state.

“What appealed most was being able to share Bryan’s inspiring story and shed light on those affected by the inequities and implications of our current criminal justice system,” Jordan tells PEOPLE about why he was so drawn to the project. “It’s easy to ignore statistics; it’s harder when you put a human face to it. I hope that giving more context to something that’s been happening for such a long time and understanding that it’s still happening will give people a sense of appreciation for the freedom that we have, but also motivate them to demand answers for the injustices that are continually happening today.”

The movie is based on Stevenson’s 2014 book Just Mercy: A Story of Justice and Redemption. In playing a Stevenson, Jordan was focused on getting “his essence right — measured, compassionate, optimistic, courageous.” “He was extremely generous with his time and has been a guiding light, every step of the way,” he says. “When I speak about Bryan, it’s hard to find words that are worthy enough. It goes without saying that he is intelligent and passionate with a huge heart. But it also took tremendous courage to take on this fight. He is a true hero,” he continues.
