There are probably people who are saying “too soon!” when they hear that Katheryn Bigelow’s followup to the pretty amazing The Hurt Locker will be a ripped-from-the-headlines (and possibly from some classified material) big screen account of the CIA and SEAL Team Six’s hunt for Osama Bin Laden (spoiler alert: they get him). I am not one of those people. Bigelow knows her way around an action movie, and she’s assembled a killer (ping!) cast: Warrior‘s Joel Edgerton, Parks and Rec‘s Chris Pratt, British-Guy-Who-Is-Not-Lucius-Malfoy-But-Could-Be Mark Strong and Jessica Chastain have all been cast. Now it seems that Dillon Panthers/Lions coach Eric Taylor, aka Kyle Chandler, will be joining the cast. Chandler will play a CIA agent involved in the effort to get Osama. We’re sure that after years of trying to catch that elusive sonofabitch, CIA Coach Chandler will make the Coach Taylor Face at least once:
…and probably several times after hearing that George Bush was going to look for Bin Laden in Iraq, of all places. No word on a release date yet, but Nicolas Cage’s people are pressing hard to get him a role, possibly as an ex-commando-turned-Tasmanian-tiger-expert who offers to guide Team Six through the dangerous jungles of the Punjab, or some such.
