Anthony Mackie to Lead The Ogun for Netflix
Is it just us, or has it felt like there have been so many new film and television announcements that it’s hard to keep track of them all? Well, we have another one to add to our list of “must-watch when it eventually releases” and you might want to add it to yours, too. Anthony Mackie is currently working on The Ogun, where he will be producing and starring in the Netflix film.
Anthony Mackie Leading The Ogun
The story for The Ogun follows Xavier Rhodes, a father to a teenage daughter with a curious genetic condition. When they travel to Nigeria in search of a cure, things turn a dark corner and Xavier’s daughter is kidnapped. Sounds kind of familiar, right? Some reports have claimed that it will be similar to John Wick, but we’re sensing some hints of Taken in there, too. Though, no matter how many times we watch a dedicated father’s mission to save his daughter, we’re sure that Netflix will be able to put a creative spin on it and make it worth our while.
Jason Michael Berman (Mandalay Pictures) will be sitting alongside Anthony Mackie in the producing chair. Madison Turner, a stunt performer best known for The Dark Knight Rises, will be writing the script for the film. So, we expect plenty of well-choreographed action!

Not in the mood to get your hopes up for The Ogun just yet? We agree that it’s likely to take a while before we see anything on screen. So, we’ll just be busy getting excited over Anthony Mackie appearing in The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, which is set to premiere in early 2021.
