Tom Hanks Will Help Kathryn Bigelow Make Lightning Strike Twice

Kathryn Bigelow won the Best Director Academy Award as well as Best Picture for The Hurt Locker alongside the Best Original Screenplay win for Mark Boal. So it seems natural that they would want to team again to see if that winning combination can be repeated. As we’ve reported before, their next project is Triple Frontier – a film focused on the nexus of three South American countries where organized crime goes to do business with ease and comfort.

Fortunately, Bigelow and Boal are hedging their bets by bringing on Academy Award winner Tom Hanks in one of the lead roles. He’s officially on board to star in the project.

At this point, it’s a matter of seeing if Johnny Depp is insterested, following the filming beginning in March, and anticipating a late Fall release. Just in time for awards season. [Coming Soon]
