Penned by Matt Cook, the Black List-approved script tells the story of a group of cops who plan a heist, only for everything to go very, very wrong. Here’s the official synopsis: 

In TRIPLE 9, a crew of dirty cops is blackmailed by the Russian mob to execute a virtually impossible heist. The only way to pull it off is to manufacture a 999, police code for “officer down”. Their plan is turned upside down when the unsuspecting rookie they set up to die foils the attack, triggering a breakneck, action-packed finale filled with double-crosses, greed and revenge.

“Triple” 9 will feature a score co-written by Atticus Ross (“The Social Network,” “Gone Girl”) and hit theaters on February 26th. Watch below.
