Kathryn Bigelow’s Triple Frontier Movie might star Tom Hanks, or Johny Depp

Oscar winner Kathryn Bigelow’s next movie is set to take place in the Triple Frontier region between Argentina, Paraguay and Brazil has been the source of local controversy as both Argentina and Paraguay have refused to cooperate, fearing the movie could derail tourism to the area, which is home to the Iguazu Falls.  However, the movie, now called “Sleeping Dogs” is on schedule to start shooting in February 2011 and Hollywood is awash in rumors about who will be the leading man.

Right now, Tom Hanks and Johny Depp are considering the lead role.

Sleeping Dogs is penned by The Hurt Locker scribe Mark Boal, the film is set within an organized crime district between Paraguay, Argentina, and Brazil while focusing on the lives of five men who work in said area.  The film is set to begin production early next year and, while an offer is yet to be extended Hanks’ way, Heat Vision reports that the two-time Oscar winner is currently in talks with Bigelow to play one of the five principal leads.

The report also mentions Leonardo DiCaprio and Jeremy Renner as names mentioned alongside the project at one point or another.


One thought on “Kathryn Bigelow’s Triple Frontier Movie might star Tom Hanks, or Johny Depp

  1. I do not believe that they accepted the script of this film. For those who do not know, after the attacks of September 2011, the U.S., with the excuse that the triple border was a refuge for terrorists, sent troops into Paraguay. There were several investigations for several years and there is no indication of terrorism. But the troops remain in Paraguay. I think that will make us what they did with the Arab countries. With the excuse that there were weapons of mass destruction, invaded and killed several innocent people and steal oil. The weapons of mass destruction were never found (because there is no gun was just an excuse that the U.S. invented for invading Arab countries and steal their wealth). Our natural heritage is being threatened, they want to take us. The Iguaçu is the largest freshwater reserve in the world. The U.S. is using the film to give the world a distorted image of our people, to show that we are unable to care for our own heritage. While Americans (with a huge American flag), will be the heroes of history. Brazil opens the eye, they are wanting our wealth.

    We do not need help from Americans to take care of our heritage. The Americans are the biggest terrorists in the world and also the biggest polluters. Why not stop polluting the planet, instead of wanting to steal the riches of other countries.

    Everyone talks about the sadness of the day September 11, 2001. Nobody talks about the years (many years) of suffering that has caused the U.S. to people from Arab countries. Certainly more people have died in war than in the attack.

    Today, they speak of the Arab people, as if they were all bandits, there are people who work honestly, regardless of race and color.
