Actor Anthony Mackie is set to star and produce Olympian Jesse Owens biopic Race. The biopic is based on the true story of African American Olympic athlete Owens who entered the Berlin Games and won four gold medals. This happened during Adolf Hitler’s reign, during which he tried and failed to exclude Black and Jewish people from the games. The year after, the athlete won another set of medals. Actor Steven James will be playing Jesse James in the upcoming film. Mackie can next be seen in the comedy A Many Splintered Thing alongside his Captain America co-star Chris Evans.
