Kathryn Bigelow May Direct Another Film Before 'Triple Frontier'

Bigelow and Boal

We've recently confirmed that Tom Hanks will indeed star in the next film from Academy Award winning director Kathryn Bigelow, whether it's called Sleeping Dogs, Triple Frontier or something else entirely. However, that project isn't slated to start production until fall of 2011, and Variety says Bigelow and The Hurt Locker writer Mark Boal are looking to get another international thriller off the ground before then. Though details are sparse, it will apparently be timely and revolve around certain black ops. However, Call of Duty fans shouldn't get excited as the film is said to be based on a true story that has "appeared in printed form."

The project is currently being shopped around to studios and if the Oscar winning team of Boal and Bigelow is behind it, you can bet plenty of studios will be taking the bait. It will be a low budget, indie project not unlike The Hurt Locker. Though it might seem like this will get in the way of Triple Frontier/Sleeping Dogs, apparently this project will actually give Boal and Bigelow more time to figure out scheduling of potential cast members. Since most of the names mentioned as potential involvement have full future slates (Johnny Depp, Will Smith and more), this may make their participation slightly more likely. We'll do our best to keep you posted. Interested?

i've got a lot more love for The Hurt Locker than many regular posters on sounds good to me - a 'black ops' style story, while hardly original in broad terms, could be pretty good in Bigelow's style. think of Strange Days, Point Break or Hurt Locker for the intense way she deals with action scenes. colour me interested.

The Hurt Locker was a good movie. But this unofficial branding of Kathryn Bigelow as war movie director extraordinaire is very immature.
