Ben Affleck Drops Out of Netflix Thriller 'Triple Frontier'

The Netflix Triple Frontier film loses Ben Affleck

Another shake-up has occurred behind the scenes of Netflix's thriller Triple Frontier.

The origin of Triple Frontier goes back to 2009, when filmmaker Kathryn Bigelow-about to make history with a Best Director Oscar win for The Hurt Locker-signed on to reteam with her Hurt Locker scribe Mark Boal on the project. Further down the line, Moonlight star Mahershala Ali was attached to the film as well.

However, as budget costs soared, the struggling Paramount eventually decided not to move forward with the project, leading Hardy and Tatum to depart just a month before filming was initially scheduled to start.

When Hardy and Tatum also left, the film moved to Netflix.

Deadline reports that Affleck left Triple Frontier to "take some time to focus on his wellness and his family", although the actor has yet to confirm why he left the project.

Triple Frontier is focused on the the notorious border zone between Paraguay, Argentina and Brazil where the Igazu and Parana rivers converge; this area is hard to monitor and therefore a haven for organized crime.

He has portrayed The Caped Crusader - who first appeared in Detective Comics issue 27 in print - in "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice", before making a cameo in "Suicide Squad" and he will next be seen in "Justice League", which is released this November. He also has a sequel to his thriller The Accountant in the works, along with the Agatha Christie adaptation Witness for the Prosecution, which he is also set to direct.
