Michael B. Jordan and his costar Chanté Adams proved they have the necessary chemistry to pull off their romance while filming a scene from A Journal For Jordan on Friday.

The 34-year-old Black Panther actor and the 26-year-old Roxanne Roxanne star were spotted out in New York City filming a scene showcasing their romantic connection as they crossed a busy street.

Also on set was legendary actor Denzel Washington, who was returning to the director’s chair for the first time since his 2016 Oscar winner Fences.

Michael’s costume created a casual look with a charcoal wool jacket over a burgundy polo shirt.

He had on a set of light blue dad jeans with white Asics trainers featuring baby blue accents. 

 Chanté was bundled up in a long black overcoat with a thick, furry collar.

It was cinched tight around her waist to highlight her hourglass figure.

The actress wore a chic pair of flared black jeans culminating in a set of square-toed black leather boots.

Chanté wore her lustrous raven locks styled straight across her collar.

She and Michael put on a loved-up display as they smiled vibrantly while crossing the street and locked their fingers.

The two were also seen chatting during the scene, with the Fantastic Four star leaning against a light post.

But the two were working amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, so they had to take appropriate safety measures between takes.

Michael was seen walking with a black cloth mask over his face, while Chanté was forced to wear a less-protective plastic face shield, presumably to prevent her makeup from being disturbed.

A Journal For Jordan was first announced in 2018, with Denzel Washington signing on to direct later that year. 

The film is an adaptation of Dana Canedy’s memoir A Journal for Jordan: A Story of Love and Honor, published in 2008.

The memoir and film focus on a journal that the writer’s late husband, First Sergeant Charles Monroe King, left for his infant child before being deployed to Iraq, where he was killed in 2006.  

The book and film also honed in Canedy’s rise to become the senior vice president and publisher of Simon & Schuster, making her the first Black American to lead a major publishing imprint.

This is the fourth feature the Oscar-winning actor has directed, following 2016’s Fences, 2007’s The Great Debaters and 2002’s Antwone Fisher.

He’s been keeping busy amid the pandemic after completing work on an adaptation of Shakespeare’s The Tragedy Of Macbeth, with Frances McDormand starring as Lady Macbeth.

The film is directed by her husband Joel Coen, who’s best known as half of the Coen brothers directing team when he’s working with his brother Ethan.
