Chiwetel Ejiofor and Anthony Mackie are part of an ensemble all-star cast in director John Hillcoat’s (“The Road”) action thriller “Triple 9,” alongside Casey Affleck, Kate Winslet, Woody Harrelson, Aaron Paul, Norman Reedus and others, in a story that revolves around an L.A. heist in which a group of thieves plan to kill a cop (a “Code 999” in police parlance) to divert authorities from their own crime scene across town. Their plan is turned upside down when the unsuspecting rookie they set up to die foils the attack, triggering a breakneck finale tangled with double-crosses, greed and revenge.
Ejiofor plays the role of the mastermind behind the robbery, while Mackie is a street-wise corrupt cop who teams with the thieves to set up Affleck’s targeted officer.
Keith Redmon, Brad Dorros and Steve Golin of Anonymous Content are producers of the movie, which Megan Ellison financed through her Panorama Media production company.
Open Road will release “Triple 9” in theaters this Friday, February 26th, 2016.
