Johnny Depp is in talks to star opposite Tom Hanks in Paramount’s Triple Frontier, a crime drama set to be directed by The Hurt Locker’s Kathryn Bigelow.  The film is about the organized crime in the border areas between Paraguay, Brazil and Argentina.  The script was written by Mark Boal, who won an Oscar for his Hurt Locker screenplay.  Boal and Bigelow are producing with Charles Roven.  According to Deadline, Boal’s script features five main roles; Hanks and Depp are eying the two major leads.

Scheduling issues could stand in the way of Depp starring in Triple Frontier: the film begins shooting in February, a month that’s already booked for Depp to film Dark Shadows with director Tim Burton.  (That film is scripted by Seth Grahame-Smith, the author behind Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter who just sold a 3D adaptation of Lincoln to Fox with Burton producing.)  Hopefully things can be shifted around enough for Depp to do both Triple Frontier and Dark Shadows.
