Anthony Mackie, known for his role as Falcon in the Marvel films, has purchased 20 acres of land that he plans to utilize for a film and television studio.

Nola.com reports the 43-year-old actor closed on the deal earlier this month, on the Interstate 10 Service Road at Read Boulevard in New Orleans, Louisiana, the actor’s hometown. 

New Orleans Mayor Latoya Cantrell expressed her excitement for the development — and for the influx of jobs that’ll come as a result — in a tweet saying, “The New Orleans East is making a comeback, bam.”

The scope of the plan is not clear as of yet, Nola.com states.
