Kathryn Bigelow's Bin Laden film snags Joel Edgerton, Jessica Chastain and more

01.06.2012

Kathryn Bigelow is mobilizing her so-called KILL BIN LADEN film, lining up an impressive cast to star in her HURT LOCKER follow-up. Joel Edgerton, Jessica Chastain, Jason Clarke, Chris Pratt, Mark Strong and Edgar Ramirez have all signed on to star in the film, which will follow the Navy SEAL Team 6 hunt and capture of Osama Bin Laden.

Edgerton had been rumored to be starring for some time but his participation was in doubt when he was negotiating to star in the 300 sequel BATTLE FOR ARTEMISIA. But those negotiations fell through and Edgerton quickly circled back to BIN LADEN.

Chastain, who was in just about every movie released this year, also had to turn down a high-profile project to get the gig. She had been in talks to co-star with Tom Cruise in Universal's OBLIVION but now it looks like she'll pass on that project to work with Bigelow.

Sony Pictures has the film set for a December 19th release, deliberately scheduling it after this year's November elections. It's just one of many films looking to capitalize on the popularity of the Navy SEALs (Disney even tried to trademark "SEAL Team 6") but considering the talent in front of and behind the camera, this looks to be the one to beat.

one of the most anticipated movies - of 2012 i thought, but probably won't come out until 2013 then?
so funny, how a woman makes better action movies than 99% of the men in hollywood.

Wonder how overly biased this movie will be. I wouldn't be surprised to see Obama himself leading the seal team.

The film should be titled, "The Truth Behind Our Government: Bin Laden's Buddies".

How the hell...?

How do you make a movie about a lie wrapped inside a bullshit story, burined within a lot of media hype and boogieman credentials? SEAL team 6 had about as much to do with killing Bin Laden as I did. They should have the old lady from Titanic throw Bin Laden's body off the back of the boat. Might even be a little more believable than the bullshit they fed us in the media.

I'm only a little curious which part of the bullshit you're referring to. The part where they knew who they were after, or the part where they shot an armed Bin Laden?

But the how is easy when you work in Hollywood. Because no matter what the truth is, their job is just to tell a story. Who cares if they get the facts wrong as long as it makes money?

what's always funny about internet hype kiddiz like yourself is, how you always call everything a lie, bullshit, and whatnot, but you, yourself obviously know the truth. just hilarious. if i was making a website i would make a checking box at the start to prevent people like yourself getting to the content. it's so boring it's not even funny anymore.
go to your conspiration forums and be happy.

the title of this movie is so stupid

cast is pretty good though. Edgerton isn't getting enough love for Warrior, I thought he was equally as good as everyone's new favorite actor, Tom Hardy.

I'm not a big Hurt Locker fan, so I can wait.
