    COLUMBIA PICTURES TO SET UP THE KILL BIN LADEN


    Earlier this month, the head of al-Qaeda organization Osama bin Laden was killed in a raid by the United States on his compound in Pakistan. Following his death, the interest for a movie that revolved around the terrorist seems growing, including the Hollywood. a news spec earlier this month revealed that there were two projects already been developed for years - Paramount's adaptation of "Jawbreaker" - written by CIA's Gary Bernsten which is about the first attempt to kill Bin Laden in the initial invasion of Afghanistan that took place back in 2001, and another one previously entitled "Kill Bin Laden" by Kathryn Bigelow and Mark Boal.

    According to Coming Soon, Columbia Pictures, the arm division of Sony Pictures has just announced that they are set to distribute that Kathryn Bigelow's film, which reunites her with The Hurt Locker screenwriter Mark Boal. It seems likely that the movie may no longer entitled "Kill Bin Laden", rather now an untitled film. The official description for the black ops thriller is as follows:
    "The untitled film focuses on the black ops mission to capture or kill Osama bin Laden, which culminated in his death earlier this month during a high-stakes raid on his compound in Pakistan. Bigelow and Boal have been developing the project since 2008 and plan to incorporate recent events into the film."

    Joel Edgerton is believed to have been given a feature in the movie that many believe that the shooting may start at the end of this summer, for late 2012 theatrical release. He was rumored to have replace Bigelow's favorite Jeremy Renner, who since his portrayal in The Hurt Locker, has became pretty busy with offers - including roles in Mission: Impossible, Hawkeye for Marvel-related entries and the new lead in The Bourne series.

    "With the death of Osama bin Laden," says Sony Pictures Co-Chairman Amy Pascal, "this film could not be more relevant. Kathryn and Mark have an outstanding perspective on the team that was hunting the most wanted man in the world. . Mark is second to none as an investigative journalist, and Kathryn will bring the same kind of compelling authenticity and urgency that distinguished The Hurt Locker and made that film so memorable and special."
