Anthony Mackie Making Directorial Debut


Anthony Mackie

Anthony Mackie will make his directorial debut with “Spark.”  The project will center on Civil Rights pioneer Claudette Colvin, and Saniyya Sidney will star in it.   In 1955, 15-year-old Colvin was arrested for refusing to give up her seat to a white woman on a bus.  The incident occurred nine months before Rosa Parks did the exact same thing.  “Not only was I moved, I was inspired,” Mackie said in a statement about the film. “It’s great to be a superhero in movies, but she’s a real live one living amongst us, and I’m honored to tell her story.”
