Nobody could have been more gobsmacked by the Osama Bin Laden assassination that Academy Award Kathryn Bigelow ("Hurt Locker") who was working on a Bin Laden assassination movie when the news broke.
The project was to have been called "Kill Bin Laden," and was a speculative work of fiction. In the words of the Hollywood Reporter, get me re-write. The screenwriter is Mark Boal, Bigelow's collaborator on "Hurt Locker."
And a book called "SEAL Team Six," about the very team that managed to kill the world's most wanted terrorist, is due to hit stores May 24. The book was finished last year. The timing strictly coincidental, if serendipitious.
