Looking for Osama Bin Laden

You might all remember Morgan Spurlock's last documentary 'Super Size Me' where he set out to prove the negative effects of fast food by subjecting himself to a diet of McDonald's fast food three times a day for thirty days!

Spurlock's latest project is by far, his riskiest yet. Spurlock has just finished his new movie 'Where in the World is Osama Bin Laden?' in which he sets out to search for the most wanted man on the planet.

The following is an article from MSNBC News:
Rumors are flying that filmmaker Morgan Spurlock of "Super Size Me" fame may have done what the United States government has failed to do for the last six years — find Osama bin Laden.

The speculation first began at the Berlin International Film Festival in February, where Spurlock showed a select group of potential buyers 15 minutes of footage from his new documentary, "Where in the World Is Osama bin Laden?" The film follows Spurlock through the Middle East in his search for the elusive leader of al-Qaida. According to, The Weinstein Co. quickly snapped up the picture after seeing the clips.

Adding to the belief, Daniel Marracino, the film's director of photography, is quoted in Variety, saying of the movie, "We've definitely got the Holy Grail."
The question on everybody's lips now is whether Spurlock has actually found Osama or this is just a clever publicity ploy. We'll just have to wait until next year when the movie comes out.
