Osama Bin Laden - Boal Writing Up Bin Laden Demise For Hurt Locker Follow-up

Oscar-winning writer/producer Mark Boal is busy turning Osama Bin Laden's death into a dramatic climax for his upcoming screenplay about the search for the Al-Qaeda leader.
Boal and his The Hurt Locker partner and director Kathryn Bigelow have been working on the script about operatives on the hunt for bin Laden since they won gold for the 2009 war movie - and now they have a solid ending, according to a Variety exclusive.
Their new film reportedly centres on the team that wound up killing bin Laden on Sunday (01May11).
Sources close to Boal tell Variety that the fire-fight at the compound in Pakistan where bin Laden was found and killed will feature in the film.
The publication reports Boal had been following the mission to seek out bin Laden, thanks to his access to military intelligence.
Casting for the hard-hitting movie is underway and Bigelow is expected to start shooting this summer (11).
