Joel Edgerton Dumps Kristen Stewart To ‘Kill Bin Laden’ With Kathryn Bigelow

Thursday, May 5 by
 

Director Kathryn Bigelow (The Hurt Locker) has seen a sudden spike of interest in her once dormant project, Kill Bin Laden. I can’t imagine why, but then again, I don’t watch the news, read the news online, and I zone out whenever anyone tells me the news in person.

Anyway, as writer Mark Boal furiously adds a happy ending to the script, the film has found one of their leads: Australian actor Joel Edgerton. You may know him as a guy who was almost the guy replacing Matt Damon in The Bourne Legacy. He’ll play a secret operative as part of a group of kickass, Osama-slamming warriors.

To take the role, Edgerton reportedly passed on the part of The Huntsman in Snow White and The Huntsman, one of three million Snow White movies coming out. He would have starred opposite Kristen Stewart. Maybe he’s not into that twitchy way she does everything. In the end, it probably came down to how little Bin Laden murdering is in Snow White and The Huntsman. Sometimes a guy’s gotta kill some Bin Laden. Sam Claflin will reportedly take the Huntsman role.

Kill Bin Laden is looking to start shooting this Summer. (LA Times)

    A movie now???? OMG. our government is busting
    the chops of our seals, who upon intel that was provided to them to
    go forward with the attach. Now they are being,( by our government}
    sequestered and questioned about the whether or not bin ladin was armed?
    OMG Are we really that concerned about Geneva rules at this point. Was it not
    Bush’s last stand to send our troops to find weapons of mass destruction…Well
    hidden…maybe. But, he gave us the opportunity to go in and find and destroy.
    Damn our luck! For ten years our troops have been the front men of many of both
    sides of the conflict. for a fight that is not ours other than to find and
    eliminate any enemy, not just Bin Laden, Anyone who poses a threat to our safety
    . The Mid Westerners, Arab, Palestine’s, Afghans, and all other
    peoples whom we have embraced, and paid for, with all good faith of helping
    under privileged, Tax free welcomed to our country to educate your selves with
    hopes that it might help their countries evolve, medicine ,, and be able to
    keep their own beliefs intact. But, the opposite has happened, They like our
    country, especially because we give them free reign, No Taxes for ten years. On
    schooling, business, housing. Real estate they acquire, Tax free. Our own
    children are in debt up to ten years after they graduate. We offer no
    assistance. We are not the home of the free, we are the home of we give you
    free. Please bring your oil, your precious gems and your influx of money to the
    land of the home and the freeeeeee!!!! That’s what we have become!! We have
    asked for what is happening here. We had a good plan, we accept all. To these
    new colonies. Open to all and we still are, but now we are being
    exploited…With a smile, a handshake, and a bank account!
