Mackie Up For “Gangster,” “War Z”

Anthony Mackie (“The Hurt Locker,” “Adjustment Bureau”) has scored an offer to star with Brad Pitt in “World War Z” and is under consideration to join “Gangster Squad” for Warner Bros. Pictures reports Variety.

Marc Forster’s “World War Z” is based on the Max Brook’s novel about the world after a global zombie epidemic.

Ruben Fleischer’s ‘Squad’ feels with a 1940s squad of elite Los Angeles police officers. Sean Penn, Ryan Gosling and Josh Brolin also star.

Mackie is currently filming “Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter” for Fox, and there is no confirmation on either bit of possible casting at present.
