Paul Giamatti to star in ‘Babylon’

Paul Giamatti and Anthony Mackie have signed on to  star in “Babylon”.

 

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.

 

Production is set to begin  this
February in Jamaica. Ian Stone wrote the script, and Andres Baiz
(“Satanas”) will direct.
