London: Actors Casey Affleck, Chiwetel Ejiofor and Michael B Jordan may appear in `Triple Nine`.

The three actors are in talks to join Christoph Waltz and Cate Blanchett in John Hillcoat`s crime drama, reported Digital Spy.

`Triple Nine` tells the story of a group of thieves who plan to kill a young LAPD cop to draw attention away from the heist they will be carrying out in a different town.

Affleck is in negotiations to play the LAPD cop, while `12 Years a Slave` star Ejiofor is in line to play the mastermind behind the heist.

Affleck would be replacing `Pacific Rim` actor Charlie Hunnam, who was previously replaced by Jamie Dornan in the upcoming movie `50 Shades of Grey`.

Jordan is in talks to play Affleck`s partner, who will set him up as he is part of Ejiofor`s gang.

`Nymphomaniac` star Shia LaBeouf is said to have been attached to `Triple Nine` at one stage.
