It looks like Anthony Mackie will have a stellar launch in 2021 as the Falcon And The Winter Soldier star’s fans can now look toward upcoming sci-fi, Outside The Wire. The first teaser trailer is online joining Mackie with actor Damson Idris for a film by Escape Plan helmer Mikael Hafstrom.
Former stuntman-turned-action screenwriter Madison Turner is now the latest subject of Netflix’s latest formal feature film announcement, The Ogun. The streamer signaled on Monday the addition of actor Anthony Mackie (Marvel Cinematic Universe) as star and producer on the new action thriller which also has Jason Michael Berman producing for Mandalay Pictures.
I caught a little something this morning about this Kickstarter for an Altered Carbon RPG. I’m not the type for these but you’re welcome to take a look, and with no better timing than the arrival of the first season two teaser trailer for the hit Netflix series based on the novel that launched the IP into sci-fi drama popularity.
The tenacious efforts at bringing elevated productions to the fray from WarParty Films continues onward with Everly helmer Joe Lynch’s latest work-up, Point Blank.
Escape Plan helmer Mikael Håfström will be back in the chair for Marvel MCU franchise actor Anthony Mackie’s latest Netflix venture with sci-fi actioner, Outside The Wire. As Deadline reports, Mackie will star as a futurisitic drone pilot sent into a deadly militarized zone where he finds himself working for an android officer tasked to locate a doomsday device before it falls into the hands of insurgents.
It was announced last summer that Netflix’s neo-noir sci-fi action series, Altered Carbon would get a second season following its successful first outing last February. Joel Kinnaman, Ato Essandoh, and actresses Matha Higareda and Dichen Lachmann led the cast inspired by the Richard K. Morgan’s celebrated novel set in a future where people can “stack” a human conciousness and revive it in a humanoid-like “sleeve”.
Jeff Sneider is reporting exclusively at Collider that Anthony Mackie and Frank Grillo will headline the Netflix original English-language remake of Fred Cavayé‘s 2010 thriller, Point Blank. Everly and Mayhem helmer Joe Lynch is directing from a script by Adam G. Simon, and with Grillo producing with Joe Carnahan via their WarParty banner next to Gaumont.
The film will tackle the harrowing tale that ensues following of a nurse (Mackie) forced to spring a wounded murder suspect (Grillo) from the hospital if he is to rescue his pregnant wife from the man’s brother. The two actors mark their latest film reunion since appearing in Marvel’s Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Captain America: Civil War.
The original film, conceived by Cavayé who co-wrote with Guillaume Lemans inspired a loose Korean remake in 2014 from director Chang titled The Target. Mark Wahlberg was once attached to the project back in 2012 with Leverage and Working Title prior to the usual evolution of things when the development process spans longer than preferred.
Point Blank is currently among a slate of transitional titles at Gaumont for its U.S. feature film division which also lists Yeon Sang-Ho’s Train To Busan as of last year. Both Carnahan and Grillo who recently wrapped action-thriller Boss Level following Jeremy Rush’s Wheelman are also involved in an enticing forthcoming military-toned remake of Indonesian crime thriller The Raid which Simon has also penned.
On the eve of the Hollywood premiere of directors Joe and Anthony Russo‘s new film, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Marvel exec Kevin Feige finally confirmed this week that the Russo brothers’ next installation of the Captain America storyline has been slated for a May 6, 2016 release date, officially pitting the film against Zack Snyder’s still-scripting Batman/Superman movie. It was also confirmed that co-star Sebastian Stan has a nine picture deal with Marvel that oddly out weighs that of lead Chris Evans‘ by just six, which does leave open the possibility for some interesting developments for the standalone film franchise as the Marvel Cinematic Universe continues onward, nonetheless.
These updates remain with more ahead as Marvel prepare for the North American release of Captain America: The Winter Soldier on April 4, 2014. Evans and Stan are also joined by Anthony Mackie who has a brand new featurette at the very top of the page, in addition to a brand new stylish poster in a slate of new character posters for the cast that were spotted in Los Angeles earlier this month.
