According to the Hollywood Reporter, Mackie will handle the project alongside Jason Michael Berman, a fellow producer, and vice-president of Mandalay Pictures, a US-based film production company.

The much-awaited film follows the story of Xavier Rhodes’ foray into Nigeria to search for a lasting cure to a rare genetic condition passed on to his teenage daughter.

It also examines how Rhodes (Mackie) went on a rampage through the criminal underworld to find his daughter when she was kidnapped.
