08.11.09 by reelz
Variety reports that Kathryn Bigelow and Mark Boal, the director and writer who collaborated on The Hurt Locker, are again at work on another action movie that features violence and crime amidst international settings. Triple Frontier will look at organized crime in South America along the borders of Paraguay, Brazil, and Argentina.
The Hurt Locker, which several have called the best fictional movie to date involving the Iraq War, tells the story of a soldier so addicted to the adrenaline rush of near-death experiences that he attempts to disarm landmines at close range.
Producer Charles Roven hopes Triple Frontier will begin shooting next year. No casting decisions have been announced. Bigelow directed Patrick Swayze and Keanu Reeves in Point Break and Boal also wrote the story for In the Valley of Elah.
