Director Kathryn Bigelow will reunite with The Hurt Locker screenwriter Mark Boal for this new story, which is based on the Navy SEAL Team 6's mission where terrorist Osama bin Laden was killed. Kathryn Bigelow and Mark Boal were already working on a similar project, which revolved around the several unsuccessful attempts made to kill bin Laden. When SEAL Team 6's mission was successful, the script underwent heavy revisions and sparked interest from practically every studio in town before eventually landing at Sony.
It has also been rumored that Joel Edgerton has been circling the project, although it isn't known if he has officially signed on yet. It isn't known when production will start quite yet.
