Last month, we reported that The Hurt Locker director Kathryn Bigelow and screenwriter Mark Boal were planning to direct an indie feature before going to work on Triple Frontier. At the time, I speculated that it could an adaptation of David David Rohde’s series of articles for The New York Times, Held by the Taliban. Variety reported that the story would “concern black ops.” Now Variety is reporting that “the plot concerns the hunt for Osama Bin Laden.” IM Global has secured the worldwide rights to the untitled featured.
So it’s looking like Bigelow will head back to the Middle East for her highly-anticipated follow-up to The Hurt Locker. With filming on Triple Frontier already scheduled for the fall, I wouldn’t be surprised if work on this untitled indie feature starts no later than spring. [Update: Variety has updated their story and we have now been informed that the story has nothing to do with Osama Bin Laden.]
