Mumbai: “Triple 9”, a gritty heist thriller starring Kate Winslet, will release in Indian theatres on March 11.
With plenty of bloodshed, action sequences and witty dialogues, it will keep the fans of this genre deeply entrenched, read a statement from PVR Pictures, which is releasing the movie in the country.
Directed by John Hillcoat, who is known for his dark and adult oriented dramas, “Triple 9” tells the story of how a group of corrupt policemen are blackmailed by gangsters to perform a near impossible robbery.
In the US, ‘999’ is the highest-priority code police use when one of their own is wounded in a gun battle. The plan in the movie involves killing a rookie police officer (Casey Affleck) by the crooked officers, but everything goes wrong when the former refuses to roll over and fights back.
The cast features an overspill of talent in the form of Winslet, Gal Gadot, Chiwetel Ejiofor and Woody Harrelson. Also featuring are TV actors such as Norman Reedus and Aaron Paul.
Winslet features as a cold-blooded mafia boss which is a far cry from her days of portraying the innocuous Rose in “Titanic”. She will be sporting a Russian accent and will be seen dressed in risque outfits.
