Hollywood’s nicest man is heading for a part of the world that is anything but. Tom Hanks has been cast in Triple Frontier, which takes place in one of South America’s most dangerous regions. And that really means something, considering South America has more than its fair share of dangerous regions.
The film, the follow-up from The Hurt Locker director and writer Kathryn Bigelow and Mark Boal, is an ensemble picture 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.
So far, Hanks is the only confirmed cast member, and I’m assuming he will play a law enforcement official. Also, there are rumors that the title will be changed to Sleeping Dogs. If these rumors prove true, could we be looking at the long-awaited followup to Turner and Hooch? We’ve got a possible cop, and the word “dogs” in the title, so all signs point to yes. (Coming Soon)
