The 43-year-old actor bought the area of land on the I-10 Service Road at Read Boulevard, close to the Little Woods neighborhood, according to land records obtained by WBRZ.
Mackie said through his agent that specific details of the deal are too premature to discuss. Still, those involved in business undertaking said the actor intends to christen his production company East Studios, LLC, WBRZ reports.

Mackie’s latest investment likely stems from the actor segueing into producing with such films as “The Banker” and “Outside the Wire,” according to 4WWL.

Mackie’s studio plans can aid Louisiana’s burgeoning film and television industry with opportunities for intellectual property acquisitions, development, production, and marketing, The Times-Picayune | New Orleans Advocate reports.
