Tom Hanks looking to star in Triple Frontier for Kathryn Bigelow
Posted by: Brad Sturdivant
After winning the Oscar for THE HURT LOCKER, director Kathryn Bigelow has been on top of the Hollywood world for the past several months. We’ve anxiously awaited word on what her next films would be and now we may be getting a step closer as rumors have surfaced that Tom Hanks is looking to star in Bigelow’s next film, TRIPLE FRONTIER. TRIPLE FRONTIER is set in the notoriously dangerous border zone of Brazil, Argentina and Paraguay, where organized crime runs rampant. The film is actually an ensemble film with many lead actors and actresses and it’s rumored that Christian Bale, Javier Bardem, Sean Penn and Will Smith have all circled the project at one time or another.
I long for the days when Tom Hanks was starring in an Oscar-worthy film every year and was turning in great performances on a consistent basis. Dollar for dollar, he’s still the best actor alive right now, but I feel like he’s been in a slump of late. So I’m excited for any role that lets Tom shine as an actor.
