Osama Bin Laden films will be written, rewritten


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: It sounded like an action blockbuster. An elite team of Navy Seals infiltrated a Pakistani compound and, following a lengthy firefight, eliminated the highest-profile criminal on planet Earth.

Soon enough, what only sounds like a movie will actually look like a movie. Or several movies.

Multiple script options detailing the assassination of Osama Bib Laden “have been attempted or discussed, including one by Oliver Stone as a follow-up to his film ‘World Trade Center’ and a re-adaptation of Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan character,” according to Deadline (via the NY Post).

This in addition to the fact that two projects in various stages of pre-production about the hunt for Bin Laden are now being rewritten to “to reflect the breaking news,” according to FOXNews.com.

Given the success of such video game franchises as the “Call of Duty” series, and a Best Picture win for Kathryn Bigelow’s “The Hurt Locker,” you know that Hollywood will have to comment – via a silver-screen feature – on the death of one of history’s most vile terrorists, and the military actions that brought him to justice.
