Ben Affleck Drops Out Of ‘Triple Frontier’ | Film News

 

The exits are here, here, and here. At least, that seems to be the tag line of eventual thriller Triple Frontier, which has now seen the departure of Ben Affleck from its cast. Affleck is the latest to drop out of the project, following the exits of Tom Hardy and Channing Tatum due to apparent scheduling conflicts. Paramount also bowed out due to the film’s growing budget, with Netflix deciding to take over.

 

According to Deadline, Affleck has left the project to “take some time to focus on his wellness and his family“. Affleck’s personal struggles have been no secret over recent years, in March revealing his battle with alcohol addiction and his journey to recovery. Earlier this year, Affleck stepped down as director of The Batman, suggesting an overload of work that is forcing him to slow down. He is still expected to promote Justice League at this week’s San Diego Comic Con.

 

Triple Frontier is set in the notorious border zone between Paraguay, Argentina and Brazil where two rivers meet and organised crime is rife.

 

Netflix and director J.C. Chandor – who replaced drop out Kathryn Bigelow – will look to cast the project very soon and ought to be wished some luck in this seemingly unfortunate venture. Another delay in production, which was due to begin next month, only constitutes a longer wait for the final product.
