The latest film that centers on the Navy SEALs' mission to find and kill Osama bin Laden is going to be directed by John Stockwell and is being called "Code Name Geronimo." The film was written by Kendall Lampkin and Voltage Pictures is selling rights at AFM to begin principle photography in January.
Geronimo isn't the only film based on the taking down of Bin Laden. Coming from Sony Pictures and the team of "The Hurt Locker" director Kathryn Bigelow and scribe Mark Boal is a film that focuses on the SEAL unit’s hunt for the al-Qaeda leader and is looking like it might not be released until after the 2012 presidential election. Relativity’s "Act Of Valor", which features a half-dozen leads played by actual SEALs and was backed by the military. This film was scripted by Kurt Johnstad, directed by the ICM-repped Bandito Brothers’ Mike “Mouse” McCoy and Scott Waugh and is scheduled for release on Presidents Day weekend 2012.
