By the end of this month Mahershala Ali may very well have his first Oscar for Moonlight, and he’s already got a series of films in the pipeline. He appears in a biopic that premiered at Sundance, and has secured a bad guy part in Robert Rodriguez and James Camerson’s Alita: Battle Angel. But now reports indicate that he’ll be joining Channing Tatum and Tom Hardy in a long-awaited, high-profile prestige project: J.C. Chandor’s Triple Frontier, the drama that was once in the hands of Kathryn Bigelow. Ali is currently “in talks” for a role in the movie written by Mark Boal, that takes place in a South American region known for crime called “la triple frontera.” There is no word on who he or any of the other critically beloved men in this movie will play.
