Open Road picked up domestic distribution rights early on and decided to give the film a wide 2016 release. “Triple 9” reunites “Out of the Furnace” co-stars Woody Harrelson and Casey Affleck as Sergeant Jeffrey Allen and rookie cop Chris Allen. “Out-monster the monster and get home at the end of the night,” the uncle advises his nephew, who gets caught in a heist orchestrated by the Russian mob (including Kate Winslet) which involves pulling off a 999, which is police lingo for “officer down.” The mob’s tricky maneuvers go awry when young Allen unexpectedly survives the attack intended to kill him. Anthony Mackie, Norman Reedus, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Michael B. Jordan, Aaron Paul, Teresa Palmer and Gal Gadot (Wonder Woman) also star.
Written by Matt Cook, the movie was financed by Worldview and produced by Anonymous Content’s Steve Golin, Keith Redmon, and Bard Dorros, along with Sierra/Affinity. Paul Green is the executive producer.
