A few weeks back, plans for a film named Triple Frontier was shelved over at Paramount Pictures and, as a result, the film’s two leading men, Channing Tatum and Tom Hardy, dropped out. Well, now it looks like the online streamer Netflix may be interested in bringing the film back to life.
The film was set to be directed by Margin Call‘s J.C. Chandor with the story set in the notorious crime-ridden border zone with Paraguay, Argentina and Brazil, where the Iguazu and Parana rivers converge, so reports Deadline. The same outlet reports that if the deal goes through, the streamer would offer lead roles to Ben Affleck and Casey Affleck, who would join Mahershala Ali who is already cast.
Previously attached to the project were the likes of Tom Hanks, Will Smith and Johnny Depp, all before Tatum and Hardy. Kathryn Bigalow was also previously attached to direct, which would have reunited her with her Zero Dark Thirty and The Hurt Locker screenwriter Mark Boal.
