*Will Smith has reportedly met with director Kathryn Bigelow about starring in her upcoming drama “Triple Frontier.”

The Oscar-winning “Hurt Locker” filmmaker has also held discussions with Sean Penn, Javier Bardem and Christian Bale about boarding the cast, reports TheWrap.

Denzel Washington had been linked to the project earlier this year, according to the website.

“Triple Frontier,” penned by Mark Boal, is set in the border zone between Paraguay, Argentina and Brazil, a region that is difficult to police and a target for the criminal underworld.

The Paramount movie is expected to go in front of cameras in December or January next year.
