Jonathan Majors Strips Down as a Bodybuilder For New Movie “Magazine Dreams”

Jonathan Majors is stripping down for his next movie role. Before fans meet his boxing character Damian in “Creed III,” the “Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania” actor will star in a forthcoming drama where he plays an amateur bodybuilder. Directed by Elijah Bynum, “Magazine Dreams” finds Majors’s character struggling to “find human connection as his relentless drive for recognition pushes him to the brink.”

“Magazine Dreams” is debuting at the 2023 Sundance Film Festival alongside other features like “Cat Person” starring Nicholas Braun, “Theater Camp” featuring “Dear Evan Hansen” alums Ben Platt and Noah Galvin, and “The Bear”‘s Ayo Edebiri, as well as Randall Park’s directorial debut film, “Shortcomings.”

Not much is known about “Magazine Dreams,” other than its A-list star fronting the movie, but Collider previously reported that the movie’s script, written by Bynum, appeared on the 2020 Black List – which recognizes the “most-liked” screenplays that have not yet been produced.
