It's only been 9 months since SEAL Team Six accomplished their mission to hunt down and kill Osama Bin Laden. Unfortunately, after burying the known terrorist at sea, Bin Laden has returned as a member of the undead and a NATO Special Forces team will have to hunt him down and stop a zombie apocalypse. Such is the premise behind Osombie, the indie zombie movie from producer-director John Lyde (You're So Cupid!) and screenwriter Kurt Hale (Church Ball).
Osombie is one of two movies involving Bin Laden — The Hurt Locker's Academy Award–winning director and screenwriter Kathryn Bigelow and Mark Boal have been working on an untitled thriller about the terrorist since before the May attack that ended his life. We're going to guess that Bigelow's project is the more serious of the two, since the Osombie trailer (via SlashFilm) is filled with A) a zombie Osama Bin Laden, B) zombies getting shot in the head, and C) zombies getting sliced by machetes and swords. We'll assume both will contain explosions, aerial gunfire, and other mayhem, but we're certain Bigelow's thriller won't contain the tagline "Bin Laden will die. Again." Be warned when you watch the teaser, it's not the safest trailer to watch at work. watch the trailer >> Posted 02.08.12 by Ryan
