Will Smith may team up with Kathryn Bigelow, the visionary director of “Point Break”. According to an email received by the Wrap, Bigelow has met with Smith, Sean Penn, Christian Bale, and Javier Bardem to be part of the ensemble cast of her upcoming “Triple Frontier”. When you win an Oscar you can put together a troupe like that.
“Triple Frontier” is about the notorious tri-border area along the junction of Paraguay, Argentina, and Brazil. Because of the geography of the region it is especially difficult for governments to monitor, and is a haven for smugglers, organized crime, and terrorist groups. They are trying to get production up and running near the end of the year.
The leaked email also includes brief status updates on “World War Z”, “Zoolander 2”, “Star Trek”, and a handful of other films on deck at Paramount. And don’t worry, the “Baywatch” movie is still happening. I know you were concerned about that.
