Chris Pratt Wants To Kill Bin Laden
He's in talks for Kathryn Bigelow's film

Chris Pratt Wants To Kill Bin Laden

Though he’s been plugging away for several years now, Chris Pratt has really made a name for himself on US TV comedy Parks And Recreation. But while he’s proven some truly solid comic chops, he’s also appeared in dramas over the years, and puts in a memorably great turn in Moneyball. Now he’s looking to tackle a fresh challenge, entering talks to snatch the lead in Kathryn Bigelow’s Kill Bin Laden.

Twitch reports that Pratt is wanted as one of the main army officers in the film, which is currently untitled, though still being informally referred to by its previous name.

Bigelow has faced a few challenges getting her Hurt Locker follow-up moving, not least because of the Navy SEAL mission that actually tracked down and killed Osama.

And the casting process has been a slow one, with the likes of Joel Edgerton, Tom Hardy, Guy Pearce and Idris Elba all rumoured as likely acting candidates but with The Great Gatsby’s Jason Clarke arising as the only confirmed performer so far.

Now Bigelow and writer Mark Boal are hoping to have the movie shooting by February, with a December 2012 release date pencilled in for the States and no word on its arrival over here.
