'Walking Dead' Star Norman Reedus Joins 'Triple Nine' Ensemble Cast
Following last night's season finale of "The Walking Dead," one of the fan favorite stars of the show will be busy during a break from the show as Deadline reports Norman Reedus has joined the ensemble cast of the crime thriller Triple Nine. John Hillcoat is directing the film about a crew of dirty cops forced by the Russian mob to pull of a seemingly impossible heist. Calling in a fake "999" (code for "officer down") is the only way to make it work, but the whole plan goes belly-up and all hell breaks loose. It's not clear what role Reedus is taking, but he would make a great corrupt cop or criminal, so he'll fit in with either side of the law.
Reedus joins an insane cast that also includes Casey Affleck, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Anthony Mackie, Woody Harrelson, Aaron Paul, Teresa Palmer, Kate Winslet and Gal Gadot. Reedus has a comfortable spot as a series regular on "The Walking Dead," but that can't last forever. After the show ends, we'll likely see him pop up on the big screen more often again. This should be one hell of a crime thriller set in Los Angeles, and we can't wait to see how it turns out. Hopefully the cast is completely filled now, because it can't handle much more talent than this. Sound good?
