Jc Chandor Confirmed To Helm Crime Pic Triple Frontier

6 October 2015 6:43 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It wasn’t too long ago that we brought you the news that A Most Violent Year director Jc Chandor was on the verge of inking a deal to oversee high-profile crime drama Triple Frontier, and now, the filmmaker’s place at the helm has been confirmed.

Incubating over at Paramount Pictures, the project was guided into the spotlight by The Hurt Locker and Zero Dark Thirty dream team Kathryn Bigelow and Mark Boal. Upon laying the foundations, however, both Bigelow and Boal moved onto pastures anew – namely the starry Bowe Bergdhal biopic. Despite this, Chandor will still be adapting Boal’s script for Triple Frontier, situated in the hellish organized crime triangle between Paraguay, Argentina and Brazil.

Originally titled Sleeping Dogs – no affiliation to United Front Games’ open-world title of the same name – it’s understood that Paramount’s crime flick has five primary roles, and that both Tom Hanks »

J.C. Chandor Fills Up His Directing Slate

1 October 2015 12:34 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

While writer-director J.C. Chandor's starry ensemble "Margin Call," follow-up Robert Redford vehicle "All Is Lost," and period drama "A Most Violent Year," all earned stronger reviews than breakout box office, these days the filmmaker is a hot director for hire. Paramount has signed Chandor to direct organized crime drama "Triple Frontier," which in its incarnation as "Sleeping Dogs" was written by Mark Boal with his "Zero Dark Thirty" and "Hurt Locker" partner Kathryn Bigelow set to direct; there was interest from Tom Hanks and Will Smith to star. The film produced by Atlas Entertainment’s Charles Roven and Alex Gartner (see Deadline) is set in a criminal safe haven along the borders of Paraguay, Argentina and Brazil.

J.C. Chandor to Visit the Deepwaters of “Triple Frontier”

1 October 2015 7:15 AM, PDT | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

With drug cartel type narratives being all the rage right now, it was only a question of time that the Mark Boal penned screenplay that originally had Kathryn Bigelow on board to direct would find a front runner on the director wishlist. It’s official. A Most Violent Year‘s J.C. Chandor has been confirmed as that person. Variety reports that the director will lense the Triple Frontier. Now we wait as Paramount continues to cycle thru A level players with Will Smith as a possibility.

Gist: Scripted by Mark Boal, this is a high-stakes ensemble 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.

Worth Noting: Chandor has been working at a film per year pace with Margin Call being quickly followed by All is Lost, »

J.C. Chandor Closes Deal to Direct ‘Triple Frontier’ for Paramount

30 September 2015 4:43 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

After reports suggested J.C. Chandor was circling the Paramount action-thriller “Triple Frontier,” sources close to the project have confirmed that the “A Most Violent Year” helmer has closed a deal to direct the pic.

Mark Boal penned the screenplay with Charles Roven and Alex Gartner of Atlas Entertainment.

The film is set in the notorious border zone between Paraguay, Argentina and Brazil where the Iguazu and Parana rivers converge — making “la triple frontera” difficult to monitor and a haven for organized crime.

Kathryn Bigelow was originally eyed to helm the movie, but after she decided to direct “Zero Dark Thirty” first, the film got shelved and she eventually left the project.

The studio will next try and lock in the large ensemble that it has wanted for the film. Sources say Will Smith is interested in starring and the dialogue ongoing, but negotiations have not yet begun between the two sides. »

99 Homes review – taut real-estate thriller

27 September 2015 12:00 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Andrew Garfield stars in Ramin Bahrani’s gripping drama of greed and foreclosures in post-economic crisis Florida

In the palm-sweating opening movement of this gripping economic drama set in foreclosure-stricken 2010, Andrew Garfield’s single father Dennis Nash is summarily evicted from his Florida home by Michael Shannon’s vulpine Rick Carver, his belongings cast on to the street, his family dispatched to a seedy motel. Worse still, desperate Dennis soon finds himself working for Carver, evicting others as he learns that “America doesn’t bail out losers”. Like a modern day Wall Street, Chop Shop-director Ramin Bahrani’s terrifically taut thriller finds a young man being taught that “greed is good” by a reptilian father figure – roles that Garfield and Shannon play to the hilt, the former convincingly conflicted and anguished, the latter alternately repellent and spellbinding, like the high rollers from Jc Chandor’s Margin Call. “Don’t get emotional about real estate, »

Shooting on Film? At Ifp Screen Forward, Debating the Merits and Pitfalls in a Digital Age

24 September 2015 7:00 AM, PDT | Filmmaker Magazine - Blog | See recent Filmmaker Magazine news »

In this era of digital projectors, Alexa cameras and minimal, Dslr-enabled budgets, the art of loading rolls of film into a magazine and shooting with a 16 or 35mm lens is fast becoming a fading practice. And yet, there are those determined storytellers who dare to pull it off. But is shooting on film on a low budget even possible these days? A Wednesday morning panel at the Ifp’s Screen Forward conference comprised of cinematographer Frank DeMarco (All is Lost, Margin Call), producer Adam Piotrowicz (Listen Up Phillip, Queen of Earth). cinematographer/producer/director/editor Ferne Pearlstein (Imelda) and director/producer Ari Taub (79 […] »

Invest In The First Trailer For The Big Short

22 September 2015 6:46 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Looking like it's pitched somewhere between Margin Call and The Wolf Of Wall Street, ensemble drama The Big Short is a bit of a departure for Anchorman director Adam McKay. Christian Bale, Ryan Gosling, Steve Carell, Melissa Leo, Brad Pitt, Marisa Tomei, Karen Gillan and Selena Gomez are all among the impressive cast riding the financial crisis, and the first trailer has just arrived online, courtesy of studio Paramount.McKay has been developing this one for a while now, working up something very different from his usual comedy brand. It's based on Moneyball author Michael Lewis’ book, subtitled 'Inside The Doomsday Machine', and follows several key people who had roles in creating the toxic credit bubble that sent the financial markets into panic mode over the last decade.Carell is Steve Eisman, a money manager who shorted subprime mortgages for FrontPoint Partners, while Gosling is Deutsche Bank trader Greg Lippmann. »

Jc Chandor Lines Up One Time Kathryn Bigelow Pic 'Triple Frontier'

29 June 2015 2:12 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Back in 2011 I wrote about a film called Triple Frontier as a possible Oscar contender that year. It was from the writer/director duo Mark Boal and Kathryn Bigelow and it was to star Tom Hanks. Since then, the project hasn't gone away despite some trepidation from Paramount Pictures at one point involving a possible $80 million budget. However, while the film hasn't died, Bigelow and Boal have moved on to the Bowe Bergdahl story leaving a director's chair open, a chair that looks like it may have just been filled. Deadline reports J.C. Chandor (Margin Call) is in talks to direct the picture with Hanks still in the conversation as well as Will Smith. 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.

After years of development limbo, Paramount’s action thriller “Triple Frontier” may have found new life.

Sources close to the project say “A Most Violent Year” helmer J.C. Chandor is in early talks to direct the pic that once had Kathryn Bigelow attached to helm.

The film is set in the notorious border zone between Paraguay, Argentina and Brazil where the Iguazu and Parana rivers converge — making “la triple frontera” difficult to monitor and a haven for organized crime.

Mark Boal and Bigelow serve as exec producers, with Charles Roven and Alex Gartner producing for Atlas Media.

The deal is not yet closed but if Chandor boards the project, the aim is for production to commence in January. A star has yet to be set for the film, but insiders say Will Smith has been eyeing the project for some time.

Exclusive: I’m hearing that Margin Call and A Most Violent Year helmer Jc Chandor is in early discussions to direct Triple Frontier, that hot-button drama for Paramount Pictures that grew quiet when Zero Dark Thirty helmer Kathryn Bigelow and Mark Boal stepped away to focus on the movie about Bowe Bergdahl, the U.S. soldier who left a base in Afghanistan and was captured and held for five years by the Taliban until he was exchanged for five high-level Taliban… »

New Projects: Joe Carnahan circles ‘Bad Boys 3′

11 June 2015 6:29 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Unless you’re talking about Paul Feig’s Ghostbusters or Toy Story 3, it’s usually not a good sign to hear of a sequel to a long retired franchise, least of all from a new, upstart director (just ask Jurassic World). This week however a director started a project that might even be an improvement on the original.

Deadline exclusively reported Joe Carnahan’s (The Grey) possible involvement in Bad Boys 3. David Guggenheim (Safe House) penned a screenplay for the sequel to Michael Bay’s 1995 and 2003 films, and the studio is hoping to move negotiations along quickly, as they plan to approach both Will Smith and Martin Lawrence to return.

We talked recently about Brad Pitt‘s involvement on a new project just bought by Netflix, but their top competitor Amazon has signed another major name: Terry Gilliam. Indiewire spoke with the cult director and Monty Python alum, »

J.C. Chandor May Direct The Liar’S Ball for A24

9 June 2015 10:37 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

Filmmaker J.C. Chandor not only has a solid track record thus far, but he’s a director who seems keen on mixing things up and raising his ambition for each subsequent film. His debut, Margin Call, was a talky drama that took place within the confines of a few offices. His next film, All Is Lost, had nearly zero dialogue and took place entirely at sea. To follow that up, he released the thoughtful crime drama A Most Violent Year last winter, and now he’s got his sights set on telling the history of a skyscraper. It was announced today that Chandor is teaming up with A Most Violent Year distributor A24 films to produce and possibly direct an adaptation of Vicky Ward’s book The Liar’s Ball, which recounts the full history of New York’s G.M. Building from before it was built to the present. »

J.C. Chandor Producing, May Direct The Liar’s Ball

9 June 2015 10:34 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

We were all pretty disappointed when J.C. Chandor, the terrifically talented helmer behind last December’s A Most Violent Year, fell off oil rig explosion drama Deepwater Horizon, but it appears that the director may have settled on a new project. Reteaming with A24, he’s producing and has plans to direct an adaptation of Vicky Ward’s book The Liar’s Ball, about the history of New York’s famed G.M. building.

Neal Dodson and Anna Gerb, both long-time collaborators of Chandor’s, are also producing the pic, which focuses on the furious battle between industry titans over the coveted area, which faces the southeast corner of Central Park. The script, which will be written by Manhattan and The Newsroom scribe Gideon Yago, heavily features Harry Macklowe and explores his fight to own and redevelop the G.M. Building over the last two decades. Apple’s famous glass »
