Netflix original film Triple Frontier – from A Most Violent Year director J.C Chandor and Zero Dark Thirty writer Mark Boal – begins streaming worldwide on Netflix from March 13 after a limited cinema release on March 6.
Triple Frontier, a new Netflix original film from A Most Violent Year director J.C Chandor begins streaming worldwide on Netflix from March 13 after a limited cinema release on March 6.
Written by Zero Dark Thirty writer Mark Boal the film tells the story of a group of military friends whose loyalties are tested when they reunite to rob a South American drug lord, unleashing a chain of unintended consequences.
Originally set up with Tom Hanks and Johnny Depp in lead roles and director Kathryn Bigelow taking the helm, the film evolved over time to retain writer Mark Boal but introduce Chandor as director with a cast including Ben Affleck, Oscar Isaac, Charlie Hunnam, Garrett Hedlund, and Pedro Pascal.
In Triple Frontier, a former commando rounds up his old team for a lucrative job. It is the first time in their prestigious careers these unsung heroes undertake this dangerous mission for self instead of country. But when their plan to rob a kingpin goes awry, they’re left fighting for their lives with their skills, their loyalties and their morals are pushed to a breaking point in an epic battle for survival.
“It’s a study in greed,” Isaac said in an interview with Entertainment Weekly, “and also a sense of: What does it mean to feel that you’ve sacrificed so much and feel like you’ve not really been looked after?”
“What starts out as a kind of morally righteous mission ends up becoming more and more questionable as it goes on,” Affleck said.
Triple Frontier begins streaming worldwide on Netflix on March 13.
