    KATHRYN BIGELOW'S KILL BIN LADEN MAY BE IN THE WORKING


    It seems that everything is all about the right timing. As soon as President Barack Obama announced that the most wanted man on Earth, Osama Bin Laden had been killed in an assault operation at Pakistan, news began to float that the long-awaited project about the leader of al-Qaeda could be reworked among the Hollywood companies. Deadline reported that there are currently two projects in the Hollywood that center around Osama Bin Laden. One is Paramount's adaptation on "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. Another one is Kathryn Bigelow and Mark Boal's movie "Kill Bin Laden".

    According to Slash Film, Kathryn Bigelow's "Kill Bin Laden" has been stalled since 2006 and coincidently, it is a 'small black op thriller' on a mission to hunt down Bin Laden. Originally, the script was about a failed mission to hunt him but a rewrite was believe to be on-going to change it into a happy ending, allowing the production to begin this summer.

    Currently, Joel Edgerton is said to be the likely candidate to lead. According to Slash Film again, "The question now will be whether Kathryn Bigelow can get her movie under way first while facing down studio competition to fast-track films like the one based on Jawbreaker. Kill Bin Laden was already steadily moving forward, but there is still work to do, and the Bigelow/Boal team seems to be cautious and methodical about constructing films; they’re not likely to rush something into production just to do it."
