Morgan Spurlock finds Osama

Filmmaker Morgan Spurlock may have found Osama bin Laden. The man behind the documentary Super Size Me showed a hand-selected group of buyers 15 minutes of his new film "Where in the World Is Osama bin Laden?," which has sparked a bidding war among studios. The Weinstein Co. quickly purchased the film. Though there's no official word on whether Spurlock found the elusive al-Qaida leader, the film's director of photography said, "We've definitely got the Holy Grail"

If this is true, it would be cooler than "Super Size Me" and "What Would Jesus Buy?" I have to wonder though . . .

Let me add that I have my doubts about this.

Thank god there is another mainstream, popular documentary maker out there who is not as annoying as Michael Moore.

If this is true (BIG If), I would LOVE to see George Bush watch the film.

Don't you think if he actually did find him, he would have reported it and taken the $25 million reward?

Here's what probably happened: Out of embarassment, George threw in some extra dough to make Morgan promise he wouldn't say anything to anyone.

George, not being the brightest in the bunch, didn't cover all the bases. So, Morgan made a movie about it, and he hasn't broken the deal.

Well *if* he actually did, the profits from the film would eclipse $25mill.

However, as interesting and entertaining as I'm sure the film will be regardless, this "did he find Osama" talk is b.s simply there to provide, well, this reaction.

Yeah, no weapons of mass destruction, no Iran nukes and some goofy film guy finds bin Laden.

Oh, I hope it's true. (Plus, for the fact, that it could lead to capturing him sooner.)

I still doubt it though.

Shoot the film then turn him in.

Production budget covered (and then some) before your movie is even released, then any and all box office receipts = pure profit.

You think Hollywood wouldn't be all over that??

They'd be even higher if he killed him on-screen. Or he could fake it, like Blair Witch Project & Cannibal Holocaust.

I have not spent any time researching this story

but, it does not seem that far fetched to me.







all this guy would have to do
is get to Pakistan

and then tell an al-jazerra reporter that he would meet with OBL anywhere, anytime.

he could be told to go into a deserted ally


a car could come up

they put a bag over his head

and he is transported that way to a series of safe houses
where he is stripped, scanned and given new clothes and a new camera to use for the taping



to accomplish this

it is a lot different
than capturing him or killing him
