Kathryn Bigelow and Mark Boal Reteaming for Triple Frontier

Paramount is reteaming director Kathryn Bigelow and writer Mark Boal on a new action/adventure project titled Triple Frontier. Bigelow and Boal last collaborated on The Hurt Locker (read my interview with them), one of this summer's best films about a bomb tech in Iraq. Triple Frontier is described as a high-stakes ensemble project that is set in the notorious border zone between Paraguay, Argentina and Brazil - making "la triple frontera" difficult to monitor and a haven for organized crime. The Dark Knight producer Charles Roven is developing through Atlas Entertainment with Alex Gartner and Steve Alexander.
If you haven't seen The Hurt Locker yet, then I suggest you make it your mission to see it before the summer is over, it's that good. My hopes are that Triple Frontier is a lot like that, with very intense scenes and an incredibly realistic feel, but set in that border zone that it's named for. The exact logline is being kept under wraps, but they've revealed enough to make me very interested anyway. And with Charles Roven producing, that means they'll be able to make this as big as they need to and it will actually get a proper wide release, which is exactly what they deserve coming off of The Hurt Locker. We'll let you know when we hear more!

Sign me up. "The Hurt Locker" is the best movie I've seen so far this year.

Kathryn Bigelow puts most of those other so-called action directors to shame.

During the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, former U.S. President George W. Bush Accused the Southern Cone countries (Brazil, Argentina and Paraguay) of harboring Islamic terrorists because of the large presence of Arab traders in the region. Were the accusations never proven, but now the director Kathryn Bigelow (the Oscar-winning "War on Terror") rekindled the controversy by disclosing That has a script ready to shoot 'Triple Frontier' in the Triple Border Between the cities of Foz do Iguacu (Brazil), Ciudad del Este (Paraguay) and Puerto Iguazú (Argentina), divided by the Paraguay river and the river Iguaçu. What Is Certain Is That Will this project bring only the stereotypes Against Arabs living in this region, the typical American view of "saving the world," war is nothing 'holy' Against Islam.
