According to THR, Ben Affleck (Justice League) and Oscar Isaac (Star Wars: The Last Jedi) are in final negotiations to star in J.C. Chandor’s (A Most Violent Year) as-yet-untitled crime thriller thriller formerly known as Triple Frontier.
The project has been in development since the early 2000s, and has had a host of talent attached over the years, including Tom Hanks, Will Smith, Johnny Depp, Channing Tatum, Tom Hardy, Mark Wahlberg, Casey Affleck, Mahershala Ali and even Affleck himself.
Chandor has rewritten the script from Mark Boal (The Hurt Locker) and centres on five friends who reunite to take down a South American drug lord, unleashing a chain of unintended consequences which tests their loyalties.
Joining Affleck and Isaac in the cast are Charlie Hunnam (Sons of Anarchy), Pedro Pascal (Narcos), Garrett Hedlund (TRON: Legacy) and Adria Arjona (Pacific Rim Uprising). Filming is slated to get underway this coming week.
