Channing Tatum And Tom Hardy May Both Headline Triple Frontier
Originally intended to serve as director Kathryn Bigelow‘s follow-up to the critically-acclaimed The Hurt Locker, the ensemble drama has ended up floundering in development hell for a little over half a decade now. Now, Academy Award-nominated writer and director J.C. Chandor, known for his work on All Is Lost and A Most Violent Year, is slated to helm the movie. Comingsoon.net reports:
Scripted by The Hurt Locker‘s Mark Boal, Triple Frontier is an ensemble picture, the story is set in the notorious border zone between Paraguay, Argentina and Brazil where the Igazu and Parana rivers converge — making “la triple frontera” difficult to monitor and a haven for organized crime.
Tatum most recently starred in Joel and Ethan Coen’s Hail, Caesar! He can be seen on the big screen this summer in 20th Century Fox‘s Kingsman: The Golden Circle. Hardy, meanwhile, is headlining Taboo (which he also co-created), an eight episode miniseries that debuts on FX January 10. Then, this summer, Hardy reteams with Inception and The Dark Knight Rises‘ Christopher Nolan for his latest, Dunkirk.
Among those attached to Triple Frontier over the years are stars like Johnny Depp, Tom Hanks and Will Smith.
