Anthony Mackie Looking At Two New Roles

Anthony Mackie
Anthony Mackie (The Hurt Locker) has been the latest star to look at being involved in Gangster Squad, and has also been linked to a role in World War Z. Variety has reported that an offer has already been made to Mackie from World War Z director Marc Forster to star in the adaptation. They also report that he is being eyed by Gangster Squad director Ruben Fleischer to take a role in the crime-thriller with Warner Bros. The reports at this stage are vague and casting is not 100% for either film. Reports even stated that "Mackie's reps had no comment, nor did Paramount." At this stage Mackie's involvement remains just a rumour.

The news does give encouragement that the World War Z project is moving forward and beginning to cast fairly major actors. The team behind Gangster Squad have been more successful in their casting after
bagging Sean Penn, Josh Brolin and Ryan Gosling. The storyline for this one sounds brilliant and with Mackie involved it could become one to watch out for.

It is good to see Mackie taking on more major roles after his undoubtedly brilliant performance in Oscar winning The Hurt Locker. He has been a busy bee as of late as he has also been linked to projects such as Reel Steel, Ten Year, Man on a Ledge and Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter.
