We previously reported that Sony Pictures would release release Kathryn Bigelow’s Kill Bin Laden (rumored title)/SEAL Team 6 film on in late 2012Deadline is now reporting that the exact release date is October 12, 2012.  To the surprise of no one, that’s in the heart of awards season.  An early October date worked out well for Sony last year they released The Social Network.  The movie, which stars Joel Edgerton, was already in the works before Bin Laden was killed earlier this year.  Screenwriter Mark Boal (The Hurt Locker) rewrote the third act to reflect the updated history and the ending is reportedly more “satisfying” now (although I would prefer an ambiguous ending in a movie to one that provides satisfying closure).

Currently no other film holds the October 12, 2012 release date but that will undoubtedly change in the months ahead.
