Jason Clarke Joins Kathryn Bigelow’s Bin Laden Film


Jason Clarke has joined the cast of Kathryn Bigelow’s still-untitled next film, Deadline reports. What’s more, the potential list of actors up for parts includes Tom Hardy, Idris Elba, Rooney Mara, Jennifer Ehle, Guy Pearce and Nina Arianda.

The project, which reunites Bigelow with The Hurt Locker screenwriter Mark Boal, deals with a black ops SEAL team and was recently updated to include the successful operation that took down Osama bin Laden.

Though he’s not mentioned in the latest update, Joel Edgerton is still believed to be part of the cast of the Columbia Pictures project, which is planning to enter production soon for a 2012 release.

Boal and Bigelow will produce the project, along with Annapurna Pictures’ Megan Ellison, and executive producer Greg Shapiro.
