Variety bring word that Oscar-winner Kate Winslet is in talks to join John Hillcoat’s crime thriller ‘Triple Nine,’ opposite Casey Affleck. Michael B. Jordan and Chiwetel Ejiofor. There’s currently no word from the outlet if Christoph Waltz and Cate Blanchett are still attached, as they were said to be in talks last month. Update: Open Road Films has just completed a deal to pre-buy domestic distribution rights on ’Triple Nine’, which begins production this summer. Aaron Paul, Teresa Palmer, Gal Gadot and Michael Pena are also in talks to join.
The ‘Triple Nine’ story follows a group of thieves who plan to kill a young LAPD officer to divert the police away from a daring heist they’re perpetrating across town. The title refers to police code indicating that an officer needs immediate assistance. Casey Affleck will play the targeted officer, while Chiwetel Ejiofor will play a career criminal who masterminds the heist. Michael B. Jordan was said to be in talks to play a street-wise cop in Ejiofor’s gang who partners with Affleck and plans to set him up. Hillcoat (The Road, Lawless, The Proposition) is directing from a script by Matt Cook. Expect more news about this project shortly.

IGN Movies has released this new poster for writer/director John Pogue’s ‘The Quiet Ones,’ a supernatural thriller/horror starring Jared Harris, Sam Claflin, Erin Richards, Olivia Cooke and Rory Fleck-Byrne. ‘The Quiet Ones’ is inspired by true events and tells the story of an unorthodox, but charismatic professor who uses controversial methods and leads his best students off the grid to take part in a dangerous experiment: to create a poltergeist from negative human energy.

Their subject: an alluring, but dangerously disturbed young woman (Olivia Cooke of Bates Motel). Their quest: to explore the dark energy that her damaged psyche might manifest. As the experiment unravels along with their sanity, the rogue PHD students are soon confronted with a terrifying reality: they have triggered an unspeakable force with a power beyond all explanation. Inspired by true events, The Quiet Ones is directed by John Pogue from a screenplay by Craig Rosenberg and Oren Moverman and John Pogue, and based on a screenplay by Tom de Ville.
