Kathryn Bigelow's Bin Laden movie postponed

Movie Description(Click Here To Hide)
Set in 2004 Baghdad, Kathryn Bigelow directs a tense and realistic drama focusing on three American soldiers whose job is to harmlessly disable improvised explosive devices (IEDs). Instead of presenting a position on the Iraq war, the story follows the moment-to-moment lives of the men in the bomb squad (played by Jeremy Renner, Anthony Mackie & Brian Geraghty).

Kathryn Bigelow's Osama Bin Laden movie will not be released before the 2012 US Presidential election.

The Sony film - believed to be called 'Kill Bin Laden' - was set to hit cinemas on October 12, but Kevin James' comedy 'Here Comes the Boom' is now set to come out on that date.

According to Variety, it is not known if the decision to postpone is because of politically-motivated reasons.

The project has been in development for nearly a year, before the Al-Qaeda leader behind the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Centre in New York on September 11, 2001, was shot and killed in Pakistan in May.

A decision about the eventual release date will be made in the coming weeks.

Oscar-winner Kathryn is working with 'The Hurt Locker' screenwriter Mark Boal on the movie, and he was able to secure intimate access with the Navy SEAL (Sea, Air and Land) team who eventually killed the criminal mastermind.
