Jesse Owens Biopic to Star Anthony Mackie

Anthony Mackie to Star in Jesse Owens Project at Relativity

Relativity is in talks to develop a biopic about American track and field hero Jesse Owens with Anthony Mackie attached to star. It’s the third Owens movie in the works in Hollywood, following the completed “Race” at Focus and an untitled Owens project at Disney, based on the book “Triumph,” written ESPN host Jeremy Schaap.

Owens, the son of an Alabama sharecropper, shattered Adolf Hitler’s myth of Aryan supremacy by winning a record four gold medals in the 100-meter dash, the 200-meter dash, the long jump and the 400-meter relay at the 1936 Olympics in Berlin.
