It was over six years ago that we first heard about Triple Frontier, which was supposed to be Kathryn Bigelow’s follow-up to the Oscar-winning success of The Hurt Locker. However, despite interest from the likes of Tom Hanks, Leonardo DiCaprio and Will Smith, she eventually went off to make Zero Dark Thirty and removed herself as director.
The project has lived on though, with J.C. Chandor (Margin Call, All Is Lost) attached to direct. Now Variety reports that two new major actors are in early talks for the film, with Channing Tatum and Tom Hardy circling the film.
The movie is set in the border zone between Paraguay, Argentina and Brazil, which is a haven for organized crime. The movie itself centres on five people working in the zone, and it’s been reported that it is based on a true story. Mark Boal wrote the script.
