American actor, Anthony Mackie, will star in and produce a forthcoming Netflix action thriller, ‘The Ogun’, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
Mackie will co-produce the project with Vice-President of US-based Mandalay Pictures, Jason Michael Berman.
The film tells the story of Xavier Rhodes’ (Mackie) sojourn to Nigeria in search of a lasting cure to a rare genetic condition passed on to his teenage daughter.
It also examines how Rhodes went on a rampage through the criminal underworld to find his daughter when she was kidnapped.
The project is not the first collaboration between Mackie and Berman.
The pair had also teamed up to produce ‘Lo’, a sci-fi drama, which starred Margaret Qualley, Mackie and Danny Huston, and was released last year by Netflix.
Mackie is renowned for his role in several hit movies including portraying Sam Wilson/Falcon in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) and his stint in ‘Avengers: Endgame.’
