Michael B. Jordan’s Outlier Society picks up Rena Barron’s Kingdom of Souls trilogy

According to Deadline, Michael B. Jordan’s Warner Bros-based Outlier Society has just acquired Kingdom of Souls, the first of a planned trilogy of novels penned by Rena Barron. Jordan will produce a big-screen adaptation alongside Alana Mayo and Pouya Shahbazian based on a screenplay by Misanthropist Sagay.

Per the report, the young adult series follows “a young woman who must give up her own life, bit by bit, in a magical bargain to save her village – and the world.” The series blends tales of folk magic, voodoo, and Orisha, all of which hail from Barron’s own community.

Kingdom of Souls spellbinds with fresh and dazzling magic.”

No word on whether Jordan will star in the film.
