After Altered Carbon season 2, Anthony Mackie has got his next Netflix project in the action movie “The Ogun” in which he will star and also produce alongside Jason Michael Berman for Mandalay Pictures. Mackie’s upcoming projects include The Falcon and the Winter Soldier and Outside the Wire.
Madison Turner will write the script for the film. Turner is a former stuntman-turned-action screenwriter. He previously set up his Blacklist script The Liberators at Warner Bros. with Michael B. Jordan's Outlier Society and Safehouse Pictures attached. He is currently rewriting an adaptation of Ed Brubaker's Kill or Be Killed for Thunder Road (John Wick, Sicario).
The film follows Xavier Rhodes (Mackie), who brings his teenage daughter to Nigeria to find a cure for the rare genetic condition that he passed on to her. When his daughter is kidnapped, Rhodes goes on a rampage through the criminal underworld to find her before it's too late, testing his powers to the limit.
The Ogun continues Netflix’s relationship with Berman and Avengers star Anthony Mackie.
Berman’s Sundance award-winning upcoming film Nine Days will be released by Sony Pictures Classics in January. Berman is currently in production on Anthony Mandler’s Surrounded starring Letitia Wright, Jamie Bell, and Michael K. Williams. Previously Berman produced Io with Mackie for Netflix, in addition to the Netflix Original Films, Uncorked, Otherhood, Burning Sands, The Last Days of American Crime, Little Evil, Amateur, and Juanita.
