Anthony Mackie, Priyanka Chopra Jonas cast “Ending Things”
One of Anthony Mackie’s and Priyanka Chopra Jonas’ next films will take them into the world of assassins, Collider reports.
Citing a Deadline report, the publication says the two will star in the upcoming action film Ending Things. The film will follow a hit-woman who wants out of the assassin business, and who tells her “business” partner that she’s ending their personal relationship as well. But she comes to realize she doesn’t want to end that part of their bond. The film is also described as being influenced by the 1994 film True Lies (directed by James Cameron), which starred Arnold Schwarzenegger and Jamie Lee Curtis.

He will also be making his directorial debut in the upcoming film Spark. It will star Saniyya Sidney as Civil Rights pioneer Claudette Colvin.
Jonas is well known for playing Alex Parrish in the television series Quantico (which ran on ABC from 2015-2018).
