She's reteaming with Paramount and writer Mark Boal for a new action-adventure project called Triple Frontier. A "high-stakes ensemble project," the film will be set in the border zone between Argentina, Paraguay, and Brazil, where the Igazu and Parana rivers come together and make for a hard-to-keep-an-eye-on mecca for organized crime. That might not be a lot to go on, but it sure hints to a myriad of possibilities.
But much more than the plot is what this will mean for Bigelow's career, and whether this feature will get more distribution love. Although lavished with praise, Box Office Mojo says that the film's widest release was on only 535 screens, where she raked in almost $9 million domestically. Do you think this film could turn the tide to super-action-director-stardom? Or will Bigelow remain a beloved, but not front-and-center, director?
