‘The Hurt Locker’ Director and Writer Reteam
Triple Frontieris an ensemble project where the stakes are high. The story is set in the notorious border zone between Paraguay, Argentina and Brazil where the Igazu and Paranan rivers converge, making “la triple frontera” difficult to regulate, a haven for organized crime. Bigelow and Boal pitched the original idea together; however the logline is being kept hush-hush. Of course, Boal is writing the script and Bigelow will direct. Both will also be executive producers.
The Hurt Locker, an Iraq war thriller based in 2004 Baghdad, grossed $9 million in just seven weeks with a very limited release, turning in a strong box office record.
