Anthony Mackie is a busy, busy man.
He last appeared as a co-lead in his own Marvel Cinematic Universe project, The Falcon and The Winter Soldier. Due to the success of that Disney+ series, it will lead directly into Captain America 4, the launch of a new film franchise with Mackie at the helm.
During a recent red carpet event, the actor was asked about upcoming projects, and according to one outlet, his next project is set to begin filming soon — Peacock’s Twisted Metal.
“I haven’t started filming [Twisted Metal] yet. I start filming in a few weeks,” Mackie told ExtraTV while on the red carpet for the CMT Music Awards. On how he’s been preparing, Mackie added, “Eating a lot of vegetables and chicken breasts.”
The official description of the show: Twisted Metal, a half-hour live-action TV series based on the classic PlayStation game series, is a high-octane action comedy, based on an original take by Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick (Deadpool, Zombieland) about a motor-mouthed outsider offered a chance at a better life, but only if he can successfully deliver a mysterious package across a post-apocalyptic wasteland. With the help of a trigger-happy car thief, he’ll face savage marauders driving vehicles of destruction and other dangers of the open road, including a deranged clown who drives an all too familiar ice cream truck.
