Coming off the success of $9 million in seven weeks in limited release for The Hurt Locker, Paramount is reteaming director Kathryn Bigelow and writer Mark Boal to work on the action-adventure Triple Frontier, with Charles Roven (producer, The Dark Knight), Alex Gartner (Get Smart) and Steve Alexander (Swimming with Sharks) producing through their Atlas Entertainment banner. From Variety:
“Triple Frontier” is described as a high-stakes ensemble project. Boal and Bigelow, who will both exec produce, sold the original idea together; the logline is being kept under wraps. Boal’s writing the script, 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.
Producer Charles Roven told Variety he’s hoping to begin production on Triple Frontier next year. He’s in post-production on historical drama Season of the Witch and is producing Sam Raimi’s Warcraft adaptation for Warner Bros. We’ll be sure to have more information on the film as it develops, and The Hurt Locker is open now in limited theaters across the country.
