Sony has picked up the Kathryn Bigelow-Mark Boal picture about the black ops mission that killed Osama bin Laden.
“With the death of Osama bin Laden, this film could not be more relevant,” said Sony’s Amy Pascal, per Variety. “Kathryn and Mark have an outstanding perspective on the team that was hunting the most wanted man in the world. Mark is second to none as an investigative journalist, and Kathryn will bring the same kind of compelling authenticity and urgency that distinguished ‘The Hurt Locker’ and made that film so memorable and special.”
Boal was in Washington last week to attend the Pentagon Federal Credit Union Foundation’s annual gala as a special guest and presenter.
