Kathryn Bigelow’s Next to Feature Bin Laden Kill

ON

As reported late last year, director Kathryn Bigelow is set to re-team with The Hurt Locker writer Mark Boal for an international thriller about a team of Black Ops soldiers. Now, Variety reveals that the script itself has been about the hunt for Osama Bin Laden and is being updated to incorporate yesterday’s events into the climax of the film.

The project, which was being prepped to move forward before news broke of the successful United States top secret operation, was previously planned as a smaller-scale effort designed to hit before Bigelow’s upcoming massive ensemble, Triple Frontier. Though it’s too soon to say how quickly the as-of-yet-untitled film’s screenplay will be ready given the recent developments, it’s likely to find a production start in the very near future.
