Marvel star Anthony Mackie has found his next project in "The Ogun", an action thriller for Netflix.

The actor, best known for playing Sam Wilson/ Falcon in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), will both feature in and produce the project.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, stuntman-turned-scribe Madison Turner, whose credits include "The Dark Knight Rises", is working on the script.
"The Ogun" follows a man named Xavier Rhodes 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 powerful abilities to the limit.
A director is yet to be named.
The feature film also reunites producer Jason Michael Berman of Mandalay Pictures with the actor, who previously backed the 2019 sci-fi drama "Io", starring Mackie and Margaret Qualley.
Mackie recently wrapped shooting for the Disney Plus series "The Falcon and the Winter Soldier", in which he reprises his MCU role.
