Joe Wright is directing with Tracy Letts adapting the screenplay. Gary Oldman, Wyatt Russell, and Brian Tyree Henry are also on board to star. Scott Rudin and Eli Bush are producing “The Woman in the Window.”
Mackie, best known for his role in “The Hurt Locker” and as Falcon (aka Sam Wilson) in the Captain America films, will wrap the Netflix remake of the French thriller “Point Blank” before shooting “The Woman in the Window,” which is expected to being production this fall, notes Variety.
His next projects include Sony’s reboot of “Miss Bala” opposite Gina Rodriguez, and another Fox 2000 movie, “The Hate U Give.” He’s also producing and toplining the Johnnie Cochran film “Signal Hill.”
