No Easy Day for Osama & Spielberg

Steven Spielberg is reportedly in talks to direct a film adaptation of “No Easy Day”, a book by former SEAL Team 6 member Matt Bissonnette (aka. Mark Owen), for Dreamworks says The Atlantic Wire.

The book is a first-hand account of what happened on the ground during Operation Neptune Spear – the raid on Osama bin Laden’s compound in Pakistan which led to the death of the al-Qaeda leader.

The film is only in the early stages of development, far behind two other movies in the works about the military operation which are due for release this year – John Stockwell’s “Code Name Geronimo” and Kathryn Bigelow’s “Zero Dark Thirty”.
