MacKay is set to return to the big screen last this year with Captain Fantastic, which sees him team up with actor Viggo Mortensen and director Matt Ross.

The actor, who has been making a name for himself in recent years with roles in Pride and Sunshine on Leith, says he has an 'amazing' time working on this latest film project.

Speaking to HeyUGuys, the actor said: "That was an amazing thing to work on. Matt Ross, who wrote and directed it, really created some amazing characters. It really encouraged me to learn about the whole community. It's about a family that is raised off the grid and then they are suddenly introduced to society.

"All the intellect behind the kids there was kind of looking at nature versus nurture. Is it pop culture or something else that effect us. I got to work with Viggo [Mortensen] and a great young cast too. It was a brilliant experience."

Captain Fantastic will be the first big screen outing for MacKay since Bypass back in 2014. MacKay and Mortensen are joined on the cast list by Frank Langella, Steve Zahn, Kathryn Hahn, and Samantha Isler.

MacKay has returned to the small screen with his latest film project as he stars alongside James Franco in mini-series 11.22.63, which follows a man who travels back in time to stop the assassination of JFK.

Captain Fantastic is released later this year.
