The star-studded cast of “Triple Nine” is about to glow even brighter. Kate Winslet, Aaron Paul, Michael B. Jordan, Michael Pena, Gal Gadot and Teresa Palmer are all in talks to join the forthcoming feature from Australian director John Hillcoat (“The Road,” “Lawless”).
In preparation since summer 2013, this ambitious crime thriller has attracted some of the biggest names in Hollywood. According to Deadline.com, all six actors are negotiating the final details of their participation in “Triple Nine.”
The project is already counting on the participation of Casey Affleck and “12 Years a Slave” star Chiwetel Ejiofor. The thriller will follow a group of corrupt police officers blackmailed by the Russian mafia into carrying out a nearly impossible high-stakes heist. To create a diversion, the dirty cops decide to assassinate a fellow policeman. But their plan is derailed by a rookie officer, played by Affleck.
“Triple Nine,” which is scheduled to begin shooting this summer, will be set on the streets of Los Angeles. The film’s title is a reference to 999, the police code for “officer down” among US police forces.
The trailer starts at 1:59 if you wish to skip Shailene and Theo speaking.
Jason Reitman has praised Kate Winslet as ”one of the greatest actresses living today” and he’s glad he waited until she was ready to film ‘Labor Day’.
Jason Reitman has praised Kate Winslet as ”one of the greatest actresses living today”.
The ‘Labor Day’ director decided to wait until the Oscar-winning British actress was ready to make their new drama rather than re-cast the part when Winslet decided she wanted a break from Hollywood.
Instead, the director shot ‘Young Adult’, which earned star Charlize Theron an Oscar nomination, while co-star Josh Brolin filmed ‘Men in Black 3′.
Reitman recalled: ”Kate Winslet is one of the greatest actresses living today, and that there will ever be. If I’ve got a script that Kate Winslet is willing to say yes to, I will wait a year, I will wait five years.
”If Kate had said, ‘Fuck this s**t’, I would have found someone else. But, for the rest of my life, I get to say I directed Kate Winslet. It’s huge.”
The drama features a salacious kitchen-based sex scene and Reitman has likened it to the infamous scene between Demi Moore and Patrick Swayze in ‘Ghost’.
He told Empire magazine: ”I think it’s the dirtiest sex scene I’ll ever shoot. People have been comparing it to the ‘Ghost’ ceramics scene and I like that comparison because that scene was an inch away from being ridiculous but works. I think that’s what we’ve achieved here.”
