THR: Paramount balked at KBIGE's $80M budget for [TRPFR], who refused to cast WSMIT, prefer THANK

Posted by: Antibody on Dec 20, 10:14

Bigelow and Boal also break the rules in their approach to the business. As they were pursuing their bin Laden film, they were developing an action-adventure project called Triple Frontier at Paramount. They were interested in Tom Hanks to star. When Will Smith asked to meet with Bigelow about the project, she was so resistant that her own agents at CAA (which represents Bigelow and Boal, as well as Smith) asked the studio to press her at least to sit down with arguably the world's biggest star. She finally yielded, though she remained uninterested in casting Smith. (Whether the film will get made is unclear; Paramount balked at the price, in the $80 million range.)

If she wants it made, better bend to the will of Will. {nm}   elchan on Dec 20, 10:30
