Oscar-winning director Kathryn Bigelow intends to shoot the drug trafficking action-drame Triple Frontier next year and possibly with an all-star cast.  Argentinian newspaper La Nación [via The Playlist] reports that Sean Penn, Javier Bardem and Denzel Washington are being rumored for roles in the film, but Playlist points out that this may be because of an NY Times piece where screenwriter Mark Boal said he met with the actors about possible future collaborations. It’s possible it’s for Frontier but, the film is still in a very early stage of production.

As we previously reported, the film centers on a border zone of South America known as “la triple frontera“, and is a haven for drug cartels.  Oh, and crime bonus: there’s a strong Middle Eastern community who have long been linked to Islamic extremists and their money laundering activities.  Rumored to be shot in the same style as The Hurt Locker, it looks like Bigelow and Boal may have the material to out-do their Oscar-winning film.
