Pacific Rim star Charlie Hunnam has been linked to appear in police drama, Triple Nine.

The film is being produced by Anonymous Content and is being directed by John Hillcoat. Christoph Waltz and Cate Blanchett are already being targeted for roles, according to The Hollywood Reporter but no-one has yet signed on the dotted line.

The thriller was written by Matt Cook about an LA heist where a group of thieves plan to murder a policeman in order to divert authorities from another crime scene. Hunnam is being attached to the role of the cop.

Hunnam who is best known for his role in FX’s Sons of Anarchy will next be seen in the big screen in Guillermo del Toro’s Crimson Peak.
