Michael B. Jordan is set to produce the World War II drama Liberators via his Outlier Society Productions banner, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed.

The pic — to be co-produced by Safehouse Pictures, which has set the action drama up at Warner Bros. via a production deal — will portray the true-life 761st Tank Battalion, an African-American armored unit which saw combat as part of the U.S. Army during WWII under General George S. Patton. Tory Tunnell and Joby Harold are producing for Safehouse, while Alana Mayo and Jordan will produce for Outlier Society.

The project follows Jordan's portrayal of Erik Killmonger in Ryan Coogler's Black Panther for Marvel Studios.
