Print this article Kathryn Bigelow won an Academy Award for her work behind the camera on the Iraq war drama "The Hurt Locker," and she is taking to the conflict in the Middle East once again. The director recently announced the casting decisions for her upcoming movie, which chronicles the mission to kill Osama bin Laden.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the movie will star an ensemble cast led by Joel Edgerton and Jessica Chastain. Additionally, Mark Strong, Edgar Ramierez and "Moneyball" star Chris Pratt are in discussion to be in the movie.
The project has been in production for quite some time, and was met with a speed bumb earlier in the year when bin Laden was killed on May 2. The film was going to be about the search, but the team had to adjust the story to match the current events. It is currently slated for a December release, the publication reports.
There have been a number of excellent movies focused on conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan over the last decade including the '90s-era "Jarhead" and "The Messenger," which earned Woody Harrelson and Oscar nomination.
