Jordan and Michael Shannon will be coming together for a TV film adaptation of Ray Bradbury's classic novel "Fahrenheit 451". Young fireman Montag (Jordan) forsakes his world, battles his mentor Beatty (Shannon) and struggles to regain his humanity.

Legendary filmmaker François Truffaut adapted the novel himself in a 1966 film and the idea of another remake has been kicking around for some time. Behind the wheel for this take on the tale is 99 Homes helmer Ramin Bahrani and now, we've got the first bit of casting news for the HBO Films project. Deadline reports that Jordan, who is now filming Marvel's Black Panther, and Shannon, who is now staring at you with his large, intimidating eyes, will headline the film for Ramin Bahrani, who previously directed Shannon in the underseen 99 Homes.

"Montag never questions the destruction and ruin his actions produce, returning each day to his bland life and wife, Mildred, who spends all day with her television "family". Since its release, Fahrenheit 451 has remained an enduring classic for its condemnation of censorship and the suppression of free thought.
