Depp Joins Hanks On Bigelow’s Triple Frontier

The Hurt Locker director Kathryn Bigelow is preparing for production on her latest directorial effort, titled Triple Frontier — or Sleeping Dogs, as it’s been reported elsewhere — and already, she’s got her eye on two leading men.

Deadline reports that Johnny Depp and Tom Hanks are expected to join forces on Triple Frontier, Bigelow’s movie about “the organized crime haven that exists in the border zone between Paraguay, Argentina and Brazil.” Hanks is already on board, and Depp is said to be interested in joining the Oscar-winning actor. There are five main roles in the film, though Hanks and Depp’s characters are considered the two major leads.

The one rub for Depp is that he’s set to begin filming director Tim Burton’s Dark Shadows this coming February, posing a potential scheduling problem. Attempts are being made to arrange Depp’s schedule so that he can shoot both films.

    I do not believe they accepted the script of this film. After the attacks of September 2011, the U.S., with the excuse that terrorism has on the border of Paraguay, Argentina and Brazil, began investigating the area, already has troops in alliance with Paraguay and Argentina. Soon do exactly what they did with the Arab countries, with the excuse that there were weapons of mass destruction, invaded and stole the oil and just never found the weapons. We are threatened, and there are people who think the best damn record this movie in our natural heritage. The Iguaçu is the largest freshwater reserve in the world, so the U.S. to save the movie, send troops. Brazil opens the eye, they are wanting our wealth.

    We do not need help from Americans to take care of our heritage. For, they are the greatest terrorist in the world and also major polluters.

    Damn usurpers.

    Unfortunately this is the vision we have for the U.S.. A terrorist country, makes war to steal natural resources from other countries. I live near the triple border is a big lie the claim that harbor terrorist cells. We have problems with the smuggling of weapons and drugs, but you also have. You are a people without culture, people jugam by race and color. In our country we live peacefully as all races (Italian, African, German, British, Japanese ….), live in paradise and do not want a fucking movie that distort the history of our people.
