Kathryn Bigelow’s Black Ops Thriller Will Hunt Osama Bin Laden

Not much is known about Kathryn Bigelow’s follow-up to her Academy Award winning “The Hurt Locker”, only that she’s working with author Mark Boal once again, and that it will involve something that has been in the news in printed form (so it’ll once again be a true story), and will involve a group of “black ops” operators. Now we know a little bit more.

Variety reports that the main premise of the still-untitled movie, which Bigelow plans to squeeze in before starting work on the bigger budgeted and star-studded “Triple Frontier”, will concern a black ops unit’s hunt for terrorist mastermind Osama Bin Laden.

Also, IM Global has secured worldwide rights to the film, which is expected to take the same approach as Bigelow’s “Hurt Locker”, which probably means utilizing a low-cost cast and a moderate budget to get it done.
