Chandor (Margin Call, All Is Lost, A Most Violent Year), starring Ben Affleck, Charlie Hunnam, Garrett Hedlund, and Pedro Pascal as a group of five former special forces operatives who reunite to steal a drug lord’s fortune. Ulrich posted about the film and working on the score on his Instagram writing “Check out #TripleFrontier, which starts streaming on #Netflix today.”

“Director JC Chandor, who I’ve admired for his previous films and gotten to know over the years, called me up and asked if I would contribute to the movie. The marching orders… Thunderous drums to back up the score in certain sequences. I’m in!! Had some fun for a coupla days in December laying down ‘thunderous drums’ on top of @dzasterpeace’s brilliant existing stems of music and score … and it’s turned out really fuckin’ cool. So if you’re in the mood for a clever, intelligent, suspenseful, well-cast action thriller with an unusual amount of smarts and depth for the genre, and the occasional ‘thunderous drums’, go find @TripleFrontier.. streaming on your device of choice via @Netflix and in select theaters now. Happy days!”

Triple Frontier was originally written by Mark Boal, the journalist and Oscar-winning screenwriter behind Kathryn Bigelow’s “The Hurt Locker”, “Zero Dark Thirty” and “Detroit”.
