Giamatti and Mackie Head for Babylon


Paul Giamatti and Anthony Mackie will star in Babylon, an indie film set to begin production in February in Jamaica, reports Variety. Ian Stone wrote the script, and Andres Baiz (Satanas) will direct.

Mackie will play a Rasta from the isolated hills of Jamaica and Giamatti will play a British minister, both of whom accompany a 12-year-old Jamaican boy from the Kingston ghetto as they try to outrun gangsters.

Stick N Stone will finance, with Stone Douglass and Mickey Barold producing.
