Kate Winslet In Talks to Join John Hillcoat's TRIPLE NINE
According to Variety, Kate Winslet has entered talks to star in John Hillcoat's upcoming thriller TRIPLE NINE. Should she sign on, she would join Chiwetel Ejiofor and Casey Affleck. Matt Cook penned the script.
TRIPLE NINE follows "a group of corrupt cops who plan a major heist. The term "triple nine" is also police code when an officer needs immediate assistance."
Winslet has earned six Academy Award nominations, and won the Academy Award for Best Actress for The Reader (2008). She has won awards from the Screen Actors Guild, British Academy of Film and Television Arts, and the Hollywood Foreign Press Association among others, and has been nominated twice for an Emmy Award for television acting, winning once for her role as MildrEd Pierce in the 2011 mini-series of the same name. In 2012 she received the Honorary César Award for her life and acting career.
She made her film debut in Heavenly Creatures (1994), for which she received her first notable critical praise. She achieved recognition for her subsequent work in a supporting role in Sense and Sensibility (1995) and for her leading role in Titanic (1997), the highest-grossing film to that time.
Other film credits include Quills (2000), Iris (2001), Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind (2004), Finding Neverland (2004), Little Children (2006), The Reader (2008) and Revolutionary Road (2008). She was most recently seen in Labor Day with Josh Brolin.
