Charlie Hunnam Ready to Commit a ‘Triple Nine’ for John Hillcoat

Pic would be next film for 'Lawless' helmer

“The Road” and “Lawless” helmer John Hillcoat is getting the gears moving on his next film “Triple Nine” with “Sons of Anarchy” star Charlie Hunnam coming on to star.

Hillcoat will direct with Matt Cook penning the script.

The film revolves around a group of corrupt cops who plan a major heist. The term “triple nine” is police code referring to when an officer needs immediate assistance.

Bard Dorros and Steve Golin are producing for Anonymous Content.

As he did with “Lawless,” Hillcoat is looking to fill his cast with top tier talent. Hillcoat and his “Lawless” star Shia LaBeouf at one point were looking to team up again dates could not be figured out.

Hunnam was most recently seen in “Pacific Rim” and begins production on the Legendary horror pic “Crimson Peak” in January. The latest season of “Sons of Anarchy” preems in September.

He is repped by CAA.
