Academy Award nominated actor Paul Giamatti has just signed on to co-star in the independent film Babylon. According to Variety, Giamatti will co-star alongside Anthony Mackie in the drama, which will be set in the inner cities of Jamaica.

Mackie will play a Rasta from the isolated hills of Jamaica and Giamatti will play a British minister, both of whom accompany a 12-year-old Jamaican boy from the Kingston ghetto as they try to outrun gangsters.

Hmm, a minister and a Rasta, hanging out with a kid from Kingston? Road trip!
