Fresh off the big splash that Fruitvale made at the Sundance Film Festival in January (which The Weinstein Company picked up for a July release), Michael B. Jordan has secured a role in director Josh Boone's 3rd feature titled Pretenders

Boone announced Jordan's casting on his Twitter page this afternoon, adding to a cast the already includes Anton Yelchin and Imogen Poots.

No plot details available yet for Pretenders, unfortunately.

Director Boone's first feature, Stuck in Love, starring Kristen Bell, Logan Lerman, Jennifer Connelly, Greg Kinnear and others, premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival last fall, and is set to be released in USA theaters in June. 

He's currently in pre-production on his second feature, an adaptation of the young adult novel The Fault in Our Stars, with Shailene Woodley starring and Fox distributing.

Pretenders will follow after that project.

Up next for Michael B. Jordan, in addition to Fruitvale, is the ensemble romcom Are We Officially Dating?, which he'll star in alongside Zac Efron and Imogen Poots again.

Writing and directed by Tom Gormican (his feature film directorial debut), the film centers on 3 New York bachelors who make a pact to stay single even if they fall in love.

Jordan will play one of the 3 dudes.
