Cloud Atlas & Triple Frontier : it's official

November 30, 2010

Last month, we told you that director Kathryn Bigelow had approached Tom Hanks to play one of the leads in her next movie, Triple Frontier (also titled Sleeping Dogs). The story is set in the organized crime zone between Paraguay, Argentina and Brazil.

Producer Charles Roven has confirmed to that Tom Hanks is the first actor to officially join the cast.

Tom Hanks is starring in the film, and we're still looking to cast the other roles. We're hoping to start shooting the movie sometime in mid-March.

Actors Leonardo DiCaprio, Christian Bale, Sean Penn and Jeremy Renne have all expressed their interest in the project but none has been officially attached to it.

That's not all. After the filming of this movie, Tom Hanks will team up with the Wachowskis (The Matrix) to play in Cloud Atlas. Halle Berry confirmed during a Q&A that she will star in it alongside Tom Hanks and Natalie Portman. She also said the filming is set for next summer.

I’m going to do a movie probably in the summer with the Wachowskis. It’s not brothers anymore, but the Wachowskis. A really interesting movie. Sort of like what they did with “The Matrix,” they have another really amazing idea that’s sort of gonna stretch our brains even further. And so I’m really excited about that and that’s probably gonna be in the summer. And that’s with Tom Hanks and Natalie Portman.
