TRIPLE FRONTIER: Netflix In Play With Affleck Bros. To Possibly Star
It was back in February that a trio of actors boarded J.C. Chandor’s action drama, Triple Frontier from Paramount. Long in development with Kathryn Bigelow once tapped to helm long prior, was a project nearing a production weeks away with Channing Tatum, Tom Hardy and Mahershala Ali all tapped to star until Paramount dropped along with the Tatum and Hardy – reportedly due to script issues.
Deadline is now reporting that talks have been underway to keep the project alive and the word now is that Netflix may very well be its saving grace with Affleck sibs, Ben and Casey possibly to star. The logline is unknown for the film which is scripted by Mark Boal and reportedly focuses on unstable criminal activities along junctioning rivers at the border between Paraguay, Argentina, and Brazil.
Producing are Boal and producers Charles Roven and Alex Gartner of Atlas Entertainment. Casting remains pending as things continue to iron out for Ben Affleck and Casey Affleck, the latter who shares Bests’ with fellow Oscar winner Ali.
