Paul Giamatti Up For Babylon
Indie thriller from Andres Baiz

12 December 2008  |  Written by Helen O'Hara

Paul Giamatti and Anthony Mackie will star in Babylon, an indie movie due to start shooting in February in Jamaica. And frankly, if we were Paul Giamatti or Anthony Mackie, and had the chance to spend February in Jamaica, we probably would too.

Babylon sees Giamatti play a British minister who, along with Mackie's Rastafarian from the remote hills of Jamaica, has to accompany a 12 year-old boy from the Kingston ghetto as they try to escape from pursuing gangsters. Bet they wish they'd stayed on the resort now, eh?

Colombia's Andrés Baiz is directing the film, from a script by veteran assistant director (everything from Eyes Wide Shut to Kingdom of the Crystal Skull) and debutant screenwriter Ian Stone. While you're waiting for this one, you can see Giamatti opposite Clive Owen and Julia Roberts in Duplicity and Mackie playing Tupac in Notorious.
