Tom Hanks to Star in Kathryn Bigelow Film Sleeping Dogs

Tom Hanks and Kathryn Bigelow Wake Sleeping Dogs

Ever since The Hurt Locker ran away with the Oscars, there's been mounting anticipation for Kathryn Bigelow's next project. Well, prepare for the buzz to go into overdrive, because the film may be getting its first high-profile actor: Tom Hanks.

Hanks is reportedly eyeing Sleeping Dogs (previously titled Triple Frontier), the story of five men working along the crime-heavy border of Paraguay, Argentina, and Brazil. If Hanks signs on, I wouldn't be surprised if Hollywood's finest leading men start duking it out for the other big roles — apparently Bigelow is already after Johnny Depp as well.
