Bigelow's Osama movie 'Zero Dark Thirty' to hit Indian screens

Pictures

Academy Award winner Kathryn Bigelow's "Zero Dark Thirty", chronicling the manhunt for Osama Bin Laden, is all set to hit Indian theatres on January 11 next year.

The film is being brought to Indian screens by PVR Pictures, the distribution arm of PVR Group.

Bigelow, who became the first woman in the Academy's history to bag a trophy for the best director for her film

'The Hurt Locker', is creating a lot of Oscar buzz with her latest movie. She has once again teamed up with Mark Baol on the script.

"Zero Dark Thirty" is a chronicle of the decade long hunt for Al-Qaeda leader Osama Bin Laden after the 9/11 attacks, and his death at the hands of the Navy SEAL Team 6 in 2011 in Pakistan's Abbottabad town.

The film will release in English in theatres countrywide on January 11.

"Zero Dark Thirty" (the title is military jargon for the dark of night, as well as the moment¿12:30 a.m. when the Navy SEALs first stepped on the compound) marks Bigelow's most ambitious production to date after the Oscar-winning Iraq based drama "The Hurt Locker".

The film has an ensemble cast that is led by Jessica Chastain and stars Jason Clarke, Joel Edgerton, Jennifer Ehle, Mark Strong, Kyle Chandler, and Edgar Ramirez.
