Deadline has word that JC Chandor almost has his cast for Triple Frontier. The drug cartel film is written by Hurt Locker’s Mark Boal that formerly had Kathryn Bigelow set to direct. They report that Charlie Hunnam, Garrett Hedlund, Pedro Pascal, and Adria Arjona are set for roles while Mark Wahlberg is currently in talks for the role that was being eyed for Ben Affleck.
The JC Chandor-directed thriller Triple Frontier has regained its footing at Netflix for a potential August production start. Mark Wahlberg is now in talks to replace Ben Affleck, who dropped out last week. The film will shoot in Hawaii and Colombia and will star Sons of Anarchy‘s Charlie Hunnam, Mudbound‘s Garrett Hedlund and Pedro Pascal, coming off Game of Thrones and Narcos. Wahlberg is coming off Transformers: The Last Knight. Still in the mix is Adria Arjona, who has been attached right along.
Deadline also confirmed Omega Underground’s previous production report that Triple Frontier aka Two Mules/Mules/North Shore will begin shooting in August in Hawaii, our original dates placing the start on August 7th and wrapping on October 27th. They’ve added that Colombia will be one of the locations for the shoot.
Netflix has been making big moves lately with upcoming features to be released by Martin Scorsese and Dan Gilory on the way.
No word on a release date but we should expect it sometime next year.
