Casey Affleck, Chiwetel Ejiofor, and Michael B. Jordan: Together at Last?

As if the casting director blindly threw a dart at an Oscar prediction pool, Casey Affleck, Chiwetel Ejiofor, and Michael B. Jordan are in talks to join Christoph Waltz and Cate Blanchett in Triple Nine, the Wrap reports. The film centers around a group of robbers who attempt to murder an LAPD officer (Affleck) in order to draw attention away from a robbery on the other side of town. Ejiofer would play the head robber, and Jordan his dirty cop disciple. Directed by Lawless’s John Hillcoat, it sure sounds like a gritty crime drama, but we’re still hoping for it to turn into an Ocean’s 13 spinoff, with Affleck applying the lessons he’s learned.
