Johnny Depp to star in Kathryn Bigelow’s Triple Frontier

Well, this definitely sounds perfect.

Johnny Depp is in talks to star opposite Tom Hanks in an upcoming Kathryn Bigelow crime drama (yeah, The Hurt Locker director Bigelow!) titled Triple Frontier.

We already had a little chat about this project, so you probably remember that names like Sean Penn, Javier Bardem, Denzel Washington, Leonardo DiCaprio and Christian Bale are also being discussed for the roles in the movie.

So, Triple Frontier tells the story of an organized crime area in the border zone between Argentina, Paraguay, and Brazil, where the Iguazu and Parana rivers come together and make for a hard to keep an eye on mecca for organized crime.

Depp and Hanks would most likely play two of the roles of five men whose story is told as they live and work in this high crime area.

According to some reports, Johnny apparently likes the part and the idea of working with Tom, but his involvement would be subject to scheduling issues.

After all, we can’t blame a man, he has been busy filming the fourth installment of Pirates Of The Caribbean in London, and he already has Dark Shadows with director Tim Burton bookmarked.

Let’s also remind you that Bigelow will keep a winning team together working with writer Mark Boal, who won an Oscar for his Hurt Locker screenplay.

Boal and Bigelow are producing with Charles Roven, and shooting is scheduled to begin in February.

As usual, we’ll keep you updated!

What do you think?

    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.
