Any film that has Casey Affleck, Cate Blanchett, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Christoph Waltz, Woody Harrelson, Michael B. Jordan, Kate Winslet, Aaron Paul, Teresa Palmer, Gal Gadot and Michael Pena set to star has got to be worth a watch. Now John Hillcoat’s Triple Nine movie has added another great talent, as Variety reports that Anthony Mackie is in talks for a role.
The movie is about a group of crooked cops who are blackmailed by the Russian Mafia to pull off a seemingly impossible heist. The only way to do it appears to be to kill an unsuspecting rookie cop, but things take a left turn when the young man they’ve targeted gets away.
There’s no news on who exactly Mackie will play, but he’s certainly in great company. John Hillcoat (Lawless) is set to direct from a script by Matt Cook. Triple Nine will shoot this summer.
