Channing Tatum and Tom Hardy could lead the Triple Frontier cast
At one time eyed to be director Kathryn Bigelow’s follow-up to her Academy Award-winning The Hurt Locker, Triple Frontier has been trying to find its way to the big screen for the better part of a decade. While a number of stars have been attached to the project over the years, Deadline today reports that Channing Tatum and Tom Hardy could become key members of the Triple Frontier cast. J.C. Chandor, the Oscar-nominated writer and director behind Margin Call, All Is Lost and A Most Violent Year, is directing.
Scripted by The Hurt Locker‘s Mark Boal, Triple Frontier is an ensemble picture. The story is 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.
Tatum most recently starred in Joel and Ethan Coen’s Hail, Caesar! He can be seen on the big screen this October in 20th Century Fox‘s Kingsman: The Golden Circle. Hardy, meanwhile, is headlining Taboo (which he also co-created), an eight-episode miniseries that debuts on FX January 10. Then, this summer, Hardy reteams with Inception and The Dark Knight Rises‘ Christopher Nolan for his latest, Dunkirk.
Among those attached to Triple Frontier over the years are stars like Johnny Depp, Tom Hanks and Will Smith. It remains to be seen whether or not any of those names might rejoin now that the project is, seemingly, moving forward. Check back for updates as they become available.
