Anthony Mackie Circling John Hillcoat Cop Drama
Anthony Mackie appeared in five films in 2013, and has four scheduled for release this year, including Captain America: The Winter Soldier. And Variety reports he may add another project to his plate called Triple Nine.
Directed by John Hillcoat (Lawless) from a script by Matt Cook, the film finds a bad cop teaming up with some hoodlums to kill another police officer and pull a heist. The title refers to police code for when an officer needs immediate assistance.
If he does join the Open Road Films project, Mackie will join a cast that already includes Kate Winslet, Aaron Paul, Casey Affleck, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Gal Gadot and Teresa Palmer.
