The first installment of The Thomas Crown Affair was made in 1968 and starred Steve McQueen and Faye Dunaway with Norman Jewison directing. McQueen starred as a rich businessman whose side job was conducting robberies. Dunaway played an insurance investigator who tracks him down and the two have an affair as Crown plans another robbery.

In 1999, MGM remade the movie and it starred Pierce Brosnan and Rene Russo. Those who are fans of both films know the 1968 version showed the two lovers go their separate ways while the updated version had the two end up together.

MGM wanting Jordan on board for this film could show Hollywood is trying to think more diverse when it comes to picking actors for lead roles.

Hopefully, this remake comes to fruition.
