Has Morgan Spurlock Found Osama Bin Laden?

  • #1
make of this what you will, if its true, then i'll be absolutely amazed!

http://www.cinemablend.com/new/Has-Morgan-Spurlock-Found-Osama-Bin-Laden-7091.html

His next project is by far, his riskiest yet. Spurlock has finished his new movie Where in the World is Osama Bin Laden?, in which he sets out to do what the United States government has apparently failed to do: Find Osama Bin Laden. The Weinstein Company bought the thing after seeing only 15 minutes of it at the Berlin Film Festival, and here’s where it gets really interesting. Rumor has it that Spurlock actually found Osama Bin Laden.

The film’s director of photography told SlashFilm that Morgan “definitely got the holy grail.” Since the movie is about him hunting Osama, that would make him the holy grail… wouldn’t it? For now though, everyone around the production is keeping things locked down.

The film is supposed to debut in Park City at Sundance this year, and since tomorrow is the deadline for them to notify people who have received press credentials and I still haven’t heard anything, I guess I won’t be able to report back on it. I’m sure someone more important than us will. Whenever we all finally get around to seeing it, I can’t even begin to imagine the media madness this film will unleash if Morgan Spurlock actually found and hung out with Osama Bin Laden. It instantly raises a lot of important questions like... if mustachioed Morgan Spurlock can find him, don’t you have to assume the US government isn’t even trying?
If he has, that would be the most embaressing thing ever for Bush! also i would imagine that Bin Laden would actually want this to happen, as it would make the US look like utter fools.

What do you think is more likely a reason for this being so popular so quickly with the companies that have seen it? maybe he has actually found something important out, even if he did not really 'find' bin laden.

No, obviously Bin Laden can make contact with people he wishes to, that's entirely different from him being "found".

The fact that a fool and his money are soon parted? The money making appeal of it, I would assume.

No idea what has made it so popular so quickly but I doubt he found bin laden considering Bin Laden has a $25 million price tag on his head. If I'd found him I would have scrapped the film called in the authorities and collected my winnings.

You've got to wonder how long the person collecting the reward will live. :uhh:

What if that's the big secret? He can show that he was found pretty quickly but let go because some peckerhead in DC thought it would be good for a more long-term political gain. Someone to demonize and scare citizens to make them easier to manipulate would be rather tempting in a purely machiavellon political view-point.

I'm sure he didn't find Osama, or else they'd be advertising that he did. Since he didn't, all they can do is keep the content a secret and hope people will be lured in by the intrigue just to find out he never found anything.

i don't think its out of the realm of possibility that he could have met osama but obviously osama is going to take safety precautions so as not to get cruise missled after they leave. they might not have know where they met osama.

they could have been screened for bugs or tracking devices and worn a blindfold for a day or two and the next thing they see is osama handing them a camera to film with.


if they have in fact met osama after trying to find him then that would make bush and/or the CIA look quite bad. mostly it would be bush though, since a lot of people would find it hard to believe that the CIA cant be more resourceful then some guy trying to get material for a movie unless bush told them to forget about the whole manhunt thing.

Wrong and wrong. He's the guy peeking out of the port-a-potty.

Hey, good eyes. He could still be a naked clown on a pogo stick though.
