Triple Frontier

Boiling Point

Does anyone hate Johnny Depp? Sure, probably. That same person probably also hates chocolate, delicious potato chips, sex, and 8 year old whiskeys. In short, un-fun dicks. Johnny Depp is just one of those guys you have to love. He hasn’t been perfect over the years (The Man Who Cried) but even his odder films (Cry Baby, Dead Man) and his less than great films (The Astronaut’s Wife, Nick of Time) are generally worth watching. Depp was only briefly a secret, but he was never a true star until Pirates of the Caribbean launched him into the stratosphere. Then that cool, off-kilter actor suddenly became a familiar face on toys, notebooks, t-shirts, and the walls of teenage girls. Do I still love Johnny Depp? Of course. But Johnny, I think it might be time to take a break.

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]
