Director: Morgan O'Neill
Summary: An obsessed cop is on the trail of a serial killer prowling the streets of Buffalo, New York. When his teenage daughter disappears, he drops any pretension and professional restraint he might have to get the killer.
Analysis: Shot almost three years ago now, Dark Castle had originally planned to release this thriller back in late 2009. However for reasons unspecified, it has been sitting on a shelf for some time and keeps getting delayed. In cases like these, the most obvious reason is usually the correct one - it stinks (eg. "Case 39"). The company certainly has had its fair share of box-office duds lately including "Whiteout," "Ninja Assassin," "The Losers," "Orphan" and "Splice".
Yet Cusack generally has good taste in projects, his last venture into horror was the surprisingly effective Stephen King »

Hollywoodnews.com: As soon as “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part One” ended, I wanted to see the finale … so it’s no surprise that “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part Two” leads a list of the Most Anticipated Movies for 2011 in a poll conducted by Fandango.com.
More than 1,000 people surveyed over the Christmas holiday chose the last “Harry Potter” as the film they can’t wait to see next year. Fans of the boy wizard will have to wait until July 15, which is when Warner Bros.’ series finally concludes.
Coming in second place in the poll was yet another sequel: “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1,” which is due in theaters on Nov. 18. Guys, meanwhile, said they are most looking forward to the second “Hangover,” which will be in theaters on May 26.
So 2011 looks sequel-heavy, and Marvel has to be a little »

The book sold over a million copies of the hardcover and e-book in the first day of release in September 2009, making the sequel the fastest-selling adult novel in history.

Tom Hanks has been confirmed to star in Kathryn Bigelow’s next film, Triple Frontier, an ensemble movie set in the notorious border zone between Paraguay, Argentina and Brazil. The area is a hotbed of organized crime activity and the U.S. Treasury cited “clear examples” of Islamic groups in the region funding terrorists like Hezbollah and Al-Qaeda.
ComingSoon scored the confirmation from super producer Charles Roven who added, “We’re still looking to cast the other roles. We’re hoping to start shooting the movie sometime in mid-March.” We don’t know much about the movie, which is interchangeably referred to as Sleeping Dogs, just that it is the anticipated follow-up to Bigelow’s “Best Picture” winning film The Hurt Locker.

Tom Hanks is running for the border.
A few borders, in fact, as “Triple Frontier” refers to the border zone of Paraguay, Argentina and Brazil, a hot spot for organized crime due to its peculiar geography that makes it hard to monitor.
It’s also the setting for Kathryn Bigelow’s highly anticipated follow-up to “The Hurt Locker.” Filming is scheduled to begin in March, with Hanks being the first big name to join the cast, according to ComingSoon.net.
Hey, when you’re the Oscar-winning director of “The Hurt Locker,” you can get pretty much whoever you want.
We’d love to say that Hanks joined Bigelow’s project because he loves “Point Break” and all that it taught him about how to truly live, »

But, at this moment, Tom Hanks is the only one who’s officially joined the project.
Triple Frontier (or, now called Sleeping Dogs) is described as “an ensemble picture set in the notorious border zone between Paraguay, Argentina and Brazil where the Igazu and Parana rivers converge – making ‘la triple frontera’ difficult to monitor and a haven for organized crime.”
Hurt Locker Oscar-winner Mike Boal is in charge for writing, while Charles Roven will produce the whole thing.

Back in October, you might recall hearing that Tom Hanks was seriously considering following up the work on his latest directorial/starring effort Larry Crowne with a role in Kathryn Bigelow’s new film, called – depending on who you ask – either Triple Frontier or Sleeping Dogs. Now, according to producer Charles Roven, the Oscar-winning actor has officially clambered aboard the film.Talking with Coming Soon, Roven let it slip that Hanks is aboard. "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."Notably, he referred to the movie as “Triple Frontier”, so it looks like that’s the winning name for now.

I consider this to be pretty big news, especially for Kathryn Bigelow's follow-up to The Hurt Locker as ComingSoon reports Tom Hanks is set to star in Bigelow's Triple Frontier. There were rumors Hanks was joining the cast, but ComingSoon was able to get in touch with the film's producer, Charles Roven, who told the site, "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."
Mark Boal, who penned Bigelow's Hurt Locker, also penned Triple Frontier, which may or may not be changing its title to Sleeping Dogs. The film is set in the notorious border zone between Paraguay, Argentina and Brazil where the Igazu and Parana rivers converge -- making "la triple frontera" difficult to monitor and a haven for organized crime.
Bigelow was actually offered the director's chair on the Untitled Spider-Man Reboot, »

Tom Hanks is joining the ranks ofRobert Downey Jr., Tom Hardy and Johnny Depp as one of the busiest men in Hollywood right now. He's currently finishing up work on "Larry Crowne," and today we have word that he is confirmed for Kathryn Bigelow's "Triple Frontier" (or "Sleeping Dogs," depending on who you ask) and is also likely to star opposite Halle Berry and Natalie Portman in the Wachowskis' "Cloud Atlas."
The first news isn't much of a shock, considering Hanks has been loosely attached to "Triple Frontier" for some time now. What is surprising is that apparently none of the other major roles in "Frontier" have yet been cast, despite reports that Depp was also attached. The film's producer, Charles Roven, confirmed as much to ComingSoon.net: "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. »
