The first woman to win a Best Director Oscar has decided to head back to the sand before taking her tropical vacation this Fall (in the most dangerous place in South America). Apparently, the comfort of home isn’t as appealing as the call to adventure. That’s a good thing for fans.

We’ve reported that Kathryn Bigelow and Mark Boal would continue their collaborations with a thriller about a black ops mission in the Middle East, but according to Variety, they’ve now secured financing for the flick and should be casting within the month. We’ll wait until they cast Jeremy Renner and Anthony Mackie to start speculating about The Hurt Locker 2: Explosive Boogaloo.

What does it all mean? That we might just have two action movies from Kathryn Bigelow in theaters, months apart from each other. If that doesn’t wake you up quicker than a cup of coffee, I don’t know what would.
