Paul Giamatti to star in ‘Babylon’

Anthony Mackie co-stars in Baiz's indie thriller

Paul Giamatti and Anthony Mackie will star in “Babylon,” an indie film set to begin production in February in Jamaica. Ian Stone wrote the script, and Andres Baiz (“Satanas”) will direct.

Stick N Stone will finance, with Stone Douglass and Mickey Barold producing.

Mackie will play a Rasta from the isolated hills of Jamaica and Giamatti will play a British minister, both of whom accompany a 12-year-old Jamaican boy from the Kingston ghetto as they try to outrun gangsters.

Stick N Stone is in production on the docu “King of the B’s: The Independent Life of Roger Corman” and just wrapped “Barry Munday.”

Giamatti, who was just nominated for a Golden Globe for his Emmy-winning performance in “John Adams,” will make a Sundance debut with “Cold Souls,” which he starred in and executive produced. He most recently wrapped the Tony Gilroy-directed “Duplicity” with Clive Owen and Julia Roberts.

Mackie, most recently seen in “Eagle Eye,” plays Tupac Shakur in the Notorious B.I.G. biopic “Notorious,” which Fox Searchlight releases in January. He also plays the title role in “Jessie Owens.”
