“Avengers” star Anthony Mackie will star in and produce an action film at Netflix called “The Ogun” that will find him traversing the criminal underground in Nigeria to rescue his kidnapped daughter.
Mackie will produce and star in the film from Madison Turner, a former stuntman-turned-screenwriter. No director has been set on the film.
Mackie plays Xavier Rhodes (not the NFL defensive star) in “The Ogun,” a man who brings his teenage daughter to Nigeria to find a cure for the rare genetic condition that he passed on to her. But 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.
