Sony Pictures has handed out an October 12, 2012 release date for the Untitled Kathryn Bigelow Project. The studio acquired the project back in May.

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.

Zero Dark Thirty was released January 11th, 2013 and stars Jason Clarke, Reda Kateb, Jessica Chastain, Kyle Chandler, Jennifer Ehle, Harold Perrineau, Jeremy Strong, J.J. Kandel. The film is directed by Kathryn Bigelow.

    The Hurt locker was good but a little hockey in some places. But some of the scenes were a little too accurate. It was an awesome film that made me squirm.

    To many people are going to think she is doing this to cash in on the bin Laden take down but in reality her screenwriter and herself had been working on a script about Seal Team 6 way before that even happened. I know it says that above but people need to know this movie isn't being made out of greed.
