Joel Edgerton Joins Kathryn Bigelow's Osama Bin Laden Movie

Joel Edgerton joins Kathryn Bigelow thriller Australian actor Joel Edgerton has signed on to play a special operative in the Osama bin Laden movie from Kathryn Bigelow and Mark Boal, the team behind The Hurt Locker, reports 24 Frames.

Joel Edgerton will be part of an ensemble of male commandos in the film, which is described as an international thriller about a team of Black Ops soldiers on the hunt for Osama bin Laden.

We first reported on the project back in December, when all that was known about the movie was that it centered on a team of special ops soldiers. It seems Mark Boal, who has contacts in military intelligence and a background in investigative journalism, based his project on the exact same team that took out Bin Laden, with the screenwriter following the mission this whole time.

No production date has been set.
