Marvel Avengers star Anthony Mackie has been cast to play a leading role in Sony’s recently announced Twisted Metal TV series.
Mackie is possibly best known as The Falcon in the MCU, as well as the Disney+ series, The Falcon and The Winter Soldier. Mackie will also be the lead in the next Captain America movie.
As reported by Deadline, the Twisted Metal series will be created by Sony Pictures Television and PlayStation Productions. However, Mackie will not only star in Twisted Metal, but he will also be an executive producer for the show.
Anthony Mackie will play the role of John Doe in the series that will have a runtime of 30 minutes per episode. Twisted Metal will be an action/comedy series, with Deadpool and Zombieland writers, Rhett Reese, and Paul Wernick on board.
We have a sweet tooth for Twisted Metal
“We’re thrilled to have Anthony Mackie on board. His ability to blend comedy, action and drama is perfect for the Twisted world we’re creating,” said Asad Qizilbash, the head of PlayStation Productions.
Currently, we don’t have a release date for Twisted Metal, but the series is currently in pre-production. So, we will be in for a long wait until it arrives.
