According to Deadline, the four are joining the already-cast Adria Arjona and Mahershala Ali in the action thriller, which the outlet says will begin filming in August.

J C Chandor directs from a screenplay by Mark Boal. Alex Gartner and Charles Roven produce for Atlas Entertainment.

The project was originally set to star Tom Hardy, Channing Tatum and, more recently, Ben Affleck, but all eventually dropped out for different reasons.

The film is set in - and takes its name from - the dangerous border area between Argentina, Brazil and Paraguay at the confluence of the Iguazu and Parana rivers. The region is notorious for organised crime and political corruption.

Colombia has hosted some high-profile film projects in the last few years, with The Lost City of Z – also with Hunnam – filming in the north of the country in 2015 and The 33, about the real-life Chilean mining disaster, basing production there the year before.

Hawaii continues to attract big-budget projects, including Marvel’s Inhumans, which is expected to deliver nearly $100m to the local economy having based its four-month shoot earlier this year.

The island archipelago has also recently housed the high-profile Jumanji with Dwayne Johnson and Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom.
