Kathryn Bigelow shooting TRIPLE FRONTIER next year with Sean Penn, Javier Bardem and Denzel Washington?
It looks like Kathryn Bigelow may in fact be getting one hell of a post-Oscar boost.
According to La Nacion (via The Playlist) an Argentinean paper, the HURT LOCKER director will shoot her upcoming drug film, TRIPLE FRONTIER next year in the area between Argentina, Brazil, and Paraguay from where the film’s name is derived.
The film is written by Mark Boal and will be in the same, “raw” sense of style that made THE HURT LOCKER such a hit. The paper is also reporting that Sean Penn, Javier Bardem, and Denzel Washington are rumored for roles in this hotly anticipated project.
Bigleow’s next project is the pilot for HBO’s upcoming show, The Miraculous Year, and with the script being rumored as a multi-lingual project, this may still be a bit of a ways off. However, it’s exciting to know that even if these are just rumors, Bigelow is beginning to be considered the really great filmmaker that she is. Hopefully this film will continue that streak.
