'Lawless' Director's Heist Thriller 'Triple Nine' Gets Release Date
Chiwetel Ejiofor, Casey Affleck, Anthony Mackie and Kate Winslet star
John Hillcoat's heist thriller Triple Nine has been slated for a release on Sept. 11, 2015.
The Open Road film features a strong cast, including Chiwetel Ejiofor, Casey Affleck, Anthony Mackie, Woody Harrelson, Aaron Paul, Kate Winslet, Gal Gadot and Norman Reedus.
Hillcoat directed the project from a script by Matt Cook. The story centers on a crew of dirty cops that is blackmailed by the Russian mob to execute a virtually impossible heist. The only way to pull it off is to manufacture a 999, police code for "officer down," but the plan is turned upside down when the unsuspecting rookie they set up to die foils the attack.
Anonymous Content, Sierra/Affinity and Worldview Entertainment are financing and producing.
The film from the Lawless director currently has the 2015 date to itself.
