article imageBin Laden set for Hollywood treatment

By Lewis McCathie     May 3, 2011 in Entertainment
Following the momentous capture and death of the world's most wanted terrorist, Osama Bin Laden, Hollywood is planning to make a movie on what exactly happened on that iconic day.
According to movie website ObsessedWithFilm, Kathryn Bigelow, the mastermind behind multi-Oscar-winning motion picture The Hurt Locker, is seriously planning to give the ten-year-old story a Hollywood makeover, just hours after his death in Pakistan.
As the L.A. Times reports, Bigelow still has to find a financial backer as well as piecing together a good enough cast for the movie to work. There is no word yet on who could play Bin Laden or even if President Obama would feature in it.
Just as PerezHilton states, the movie will cleverly be titled 'Kill Bin Laden' and will focus on the long pursuit of the world's most dangerous man when he was believed to be hiding out in the mountainous region between Afghanistan and Pakistan, but as we all know, he was astonishingly chilling out in a $600,000 mansion in an affluent suburb of Pakistan.
There is sure to be mixed reaction to this announcement. Plenty movie-loving Americans will rejoice at the prospect of a patriotic blockbuster detailing how we 'got him' . However, relatives of those who were tragically killed in the worst ever attack on the U.S. -9/11- may not welcome the news that Hollywood is aiming to profit off of the death of the al-Qaeda leader. He was after all, largely responsible for the deaths of almost 3,000 all too innocent people, on that dark Manhattan day almost ten years ago.
