Renner & Mackie Open A Locker

Jeremy Renner, Anthony Mackie and Brian Geraghty will headline the Kathryn Bigelow-directed Iraq War drama “The Hurt Locker” says The Hollywood Reporter.

Written by former journalist Mark Boal and inspired by true events, “Locker” follows an elite Army Explosive Ordinance Disposal team in present-day Baghdad that fights an onslaught of bombs and snipers.

Renner will play the leader of the team, while Mackie and Geraghty are members of it. Ralph Fiennes and Guy Pearce both cameo, the former as a mercenary, the later as another team member.

Filming is scheduled to begin next week in Jordan and Kuwait.
