It’s looking like former Kathryn Bigelow project Triple Frontier written by Hurt Locker and Zero Dark Thirty’s Mark Boal is finally casting lead roles.
Deadline has learned that Tom Hardy and Channing Tatum are circling the project which will be directed by A Most Violent Year’s JC Chandor.
Conversations are ongoing with Channing Tatum and Tom Hardy for Paramount’s Triple Frontier, the Mark Boal-scripted thriller set in the notorious border zone between Paraguay, Argentina, and Brazil where the Iguazu and Parana rivers converge. This is the film that Katherine Bigelow once planned to direct, and which at one time Tom Hanks and Will Smith and Johnny Depp circled. JC Chandor is the director and Charles Roven is the producer. No deals yet, but things are heating up.
