The Walking Dead’s Norman Reedus To Leave Daryl Behind As He Joins Woody Harrelson And Aaron Paul In New Thriller
Norman Reedus will be saying goodbye to Daryl Dixon, well at least for a while anyway as he’s just signed up for a new big screen project alongside some major TV talents including True Detective’s Woody Harrelson and Breaking Bad’s Aaron Paul so basically it’s set to be pretty awesome from the get go.
Reedus will spend his hiatus from AMC’s hit show filming John Hillcoat’s new movie Triple Nine. The actor, whose nail-biting season four finale for The Walking Dead hit UK screens last night, joins an impressive cast for the heist thriller, from the director of Lawless and The Road.
With a script from The River writer Matt Cook, the movie follows a group of dirty cops who are backmailed by the Russian mob to undertake a seemingly impossible heist mission. They come up with a plan involving the murder of a rookie police officer but things are turned on their head leading to an action packed finale stuffed with double crosses and revenge.
Deadline report that Reedus joins an all-star cast which includes Casey Affleck, Woody Harrelson, 12 Years and Slave star and Oscar nominee Chiwetel Ejiofor, Kate Winslet, Anthony Mackie, Aaron Paul, Teresa Palmer, and Zack Snyder’s new Wonder Woman Gal Gadot. Yes, that is exactly what you would call a stellar cast right there guys.
Reedus currently has a few months from wondering aimlessly round the east coast of America, slaying zombies and grunting on the Atlanta set of The Walking Dead, which wrapped up its fourth series this week in a typically sensational fashion.
Triple Nine marks the first major movie role for Reedus since he joined the cast of The Walking Dead in 2010 and we cannot wait to see the actor branching out. Any excuse for more Reedus and we are there with bells on.
