Michael B. Jordan has joined Chiwetel Ejiofor (whose casting was announced here yesterday) in director John Hillcoat's (The Road) crime drama Triple Nine, alongside Casey Affleck and Kate Winslet.

Set to film this summer, the story revolves around an L.A. heist in which a group of thieves plan to kill a cop (a "Code 999" in police parlance) to divert authorities from their own crime scene across town.

The old diversion trick.

Ejiofor is taking on the role of the mastermind behind the robbery, while Jordan will play a street-wise cop who teams with the thieves to set up Affleck's targeted officer.

Keith RedmonBrad Dorros and Steve Golin of Anonymous Content are producing the movie with Megan Ellison on board to finance through her Panorama Media production company.

Open Road will release the film in 2015.

Both Ejiofor and Jordan are on the tail-end of a strong 2013, which saw both actors star in 2 of the most-talked about films of the year: 12 Years A Slave (Ejiofor) and Fruitvale Station (Jordan).

Jordan can currently be seen in the romantic comedy, That Awkward Moment, in which he co-stars alongside Zac Efron and Miles Teller, as 3 New York bachelors who make a pact to stay single even if they fall in love.
