Yesterday it was announced that Tom Hanks was looking to take a lead role in the next Kathryn Bigelow film Sleeping Dogs. Today Deadline is reporting that Johnny Depp is also looking at taking a role in the film. Tom Hanks and Johnny Depp together in a movie? Umm... yes, that would be awesome!
Sleeping Dogs is an ensemble story 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.
There are three other pretty descent sized roles in the movie that need to be filled, and it will be interesting to see who ends up filling up this cast. This seems like it's shaping up to be a pretty big name production. Bigalow won an Academy Award for her film The Hurt Locker, so it makes sense that big name actors would want to work with her on a film like this.
What do you all think about the possibility of Hanks and Depp working together?
