Kathryn Bigelow’s follow up to the 2008 hit The Hurt Locker, tentatively titled Triple Frontier, has one hell of an actor anchoring the project. Not long ago news surfaced that Bigelow was interested in both Tom Hanks and Johnny Depp to lead the picture; It seems Tom Hanks took the bait!
Triple Frontier producer Charles Roven recently spoke with Comingsoon, the interview yielded this not-so-shocking (but awesome just the same) statement, “Tom Hanks is starring in the film, and we’re still looking to cast the other roles. We’re hoping to start shooting the movie sometime in mid-March.”
It’s a great start for what will likely be an impressive production. Tom Hanks doesn’t climb on board unless the story speaks to him, of this we already know.
While Rover didn’t address the topic, rumors have indicated that Triple Frontier may still undergo a title change. The rumored new title is Sleeping Dogs.
We’ll keep you up-to-speed as more Triple Frontier news rolls in!
