When Kathryn Bigelow's follow-up to the 'The Hurt Locker' was announced, there was no question of whether it would be something to keep an eye out for, but there was a question of whether it would get more play and hit more screens than the modestly released Oscar winner. 'Locker' was one of those features that came out of nowhere for a lot of viewers, wiping the Academy floor with everything, including ex-husband James Cameron's* mega-opus, 'Avatar.'

But now there's a name circling the project that should give it more notoriety, and maybe enough star power to get the buzz whipped up well before Oscar season. As she preps 'Sleeping Dogs' (previously called 'Triple Frontier'), word has hit that Tom Hanks is interested in the production.
