Mahershala Ali’s acting career is on the up and up.
The Oscar frontrunner is in talks to join Channing Tatum and Tom Hardy in the forthcoming Paramount film Triple Frontier.
The film is set in the notorious border zone between Paraguay, Argentina, and Brazil where the Iguazu and Parana rivers converge — making “la triple frontera” difficult to monitor and a haven for organized crime.
Details regarding Mahershala’s role have not been divulged, but the cast of Triple Frontier is shaping up nicely.
Mahershala is up for Best Actor in a Supporting Role at next Sunday’s Academy Awards.
