Kyle Chandler Joins the Hunt for Bin Laden

Kyle ChandlerCoach Taylor is leaving his clipboard behind on the rough and tumble plains of Central Texas to join the hunt for Al-Qaeda leader Osama Bin Laden. Or at least, he is in “Hurt Locker” director Kathryn Bigelow’s follow-up film, the as-yet-untitled, but they really should go with “Kill Bin Laden”.

Kyle Chandler joins a cast that already includes Jason Clarke, Joel Edgerton, Chris Pratt, Jessica Chastain, Mark Strong and Edgar Ramirez, about the United States’ hunt for the terrorist leader in the aftermath of 9/11. Chandler will play one of the CIA agents whose intelligence gathering led to members of Navy SEAL Team 6 finding and eventually busting a cap in ol Osama’s ass while he be chillin’ in a Pakistan safe house.

Bigelow is directing from a script by Mark Boal, who also wrote the Award-winning “Hurt Locker” with her.

The film is scheduled for release on December 19, 2012, because what says Christmas movie like the methodical hunt and assassination of a terrorist leader on foreign soil? Now that’s inspirational!
