The Banker is a drama based on the true story of two African American entrepreneurs, Bernard Garrett (Mackie) and Joe Morris (Jackson), who during the 1950’s tried to circumvent the racial limitations of the era and take on the establishment by recruiting a working class white man, Matt Steiner (Nicholas Hoult) and training him to pose as the head of their business empire while they posed as a janitor and a chauffeur. Bernard’s wife Eunice (Nia Long), plays a key role in setting up the enterprise. Garrett and Morris become two of the wealthiest and most successful real estate owners in the country with Steiner as their front man, but their success brings about unforeseen risk of exposure that threatens everything.

The film is being directed by George Nolfi (The Adjustment Bureau) on a script by Niceole R. Levy (Cloak & Dagger), David Lewis Smith, Stan Younger and Nolfi based on a story from Smith, Younger and Brad Kane (Black Sails).

Jackson and Mackie reunite for the film after appearing in Marvel’s Captain America: Winter SoldierAvengers: Age of Ultron, Avengers: Infinity War, and Avengers: EndgameThe Banker is set to hit theaters on December 6 with some help from Bleecker Street and Apple TV+ in January.
