"The Hurt Locker" Oscar-winner Kathryn Bigelow might have a big head start over the competition with her Osama Bin Laden project, which just got picked up by Sony, but switching over to that film means that another of her projects has some competition that might well pip it to the post. Bigelow was originally meant to follow up her awards success by reteaming with writer Mark Boal (who's also writing the Bin Laden project) on "Triple Frontier," an action-drama starring Tom Hanks (and potentially Johnny Depp as well), a "Traffic"-style multi-stranded tale focusing on the border between Argentina, Brazil and Paraguay, a crime-ridden area rife with drug traffickers.
