Edgerton to Star in Bigelow’s Osama bin Laden Movie


Australian actor Joel Edgerton will play a special operative in director Kathryn Bigelow and writer Mark Boal’s new Osama bin Laden movie, reports 24 Frames.

The The Hurt Locker duo’s new film is an international thriller about a team of Black Ops soldiers. The script is about the hunt for Osama bin Laden and is now being updated to incorporate Sunday’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.
