Anthony Mackie Joins Sandra Bullock in Political Dramedy 'Our Brand is Crisis'

Anthony Mackie has signed up to co-star alongside Sandra Bullock in David Gordon Green’s political dramedy “Our Brand is Crisis,” which is currently set up at Warner Bros.

Based on Rachel Boynton’s award-winning 2005 documentary of the same name, the story centers on American political campaign marketing tactics and their consequences. George Clooney’s production company, Smokehouse, picked up feature film remake rights to the documentary, which is currently being scripted by Peter Straughan.

No word yet on what role exactly Mackie has signed up to play, but production is set to begin this fall.

Mackie most appeared Marvel’s “Captain America: The Winter Soldier,” playing Falcon. He’ll next be seen in John Hillcoat’s heist film “Triple Nine,” and with his “Captain America” co-star Chris Evans in the romantic comedy, “Playing It Cool.”
