In the latest setback for a production that has run into its share of hurdles, Ben Affleck is parting ways with the Netflix thriller “Triple Frontier,” Variety reports, citing sources close to the project.
“Affleck had been circling a starring role earlier this year after Tom Hardy and Channing Tatum dropped out due to scheduling conflicts,” the story reports.
Variety adds: “The film was originally set up at Paramount. After struggling for months to reduce the growing budget for the pic, the studio decided not to move forward on the project. Once Hardy and Tatum left, the film moved to Netflix, with Affleck eyeing the film. The streaming giant will now look for a new cast.”
