The film is directed by Kathryn Bigelow with screenplay by Mark Boal, both associated with The Hurt Locker, another military action thriller. It will star Jessica Chastain, Joel Edgerton, and Mark Strong. The film, which was also referred to as the Untitled Kathryn Bigelow Osama bin Laden Film or Untitled International Thriller, was later reported by multiple sources to be titled Zero Dark Thirty. The title is not yet officially confirmed. Earlier it was sometimes referred as Kill Bin Laden and Hunt. Shooting for the film is in progress at Chandigarh, India. Some parts of Chandigarh were turned into Lahore and Abbottabad, Pakistan, where Osama bin Laden was found and killed in May 2011. There have been reports of Right-wing Hindu protests against the Pakistani portrayal on Indian land. U.S. President Barack Obama was accused of jeopardising US national security by giving Bigelow and her team "top-level access to the most classified mission in history" during their research for the film, but Bigelow denied favoritism by Obama.
