"Kill Bin Laden"

This instantly leapfrogs to the top of my "Most Anticipated Upcoming Movies" list:

Kathryn Bigelow, who is responsible for The Hurt Locker, an Iraq war movie thatís both profoundly moral and tremendously gripping, is already working on a project with the working title of Kill bin Laden. Her Hurt Locker collaborator, Mark Boal, who also wrote the magazine story that formed the basis for In the Valley of Elah, is working on the movie with her.
Since "The Hurt Locker" is, other than a handful of documentaries, literally the only good Iraq War film, I trust this team in making the Bin Laden movie much more than I would, say, Michael Bay, Peter Berg or Paul Haggis.
