Default Guy from "Super Size Me" finds Osama Bin Laden and Interviews him..

Did Morgan Spurlock find Osama bin Laden?

15 minutes of footage shown at film fest sparks bidding war, speculation

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 Slashfilm.com, 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."

Whether this is just a genius publicity ploy or if Spurlock actually found bin Laden has yet to be revealed, but the answer should come next year, when the documentary is slated to premiere at the Sundance Film Festival.

Quote:
..allegedly the Weinstein's have dropped 25 million on Spurlock for the movie based on these 15 minutes alone. Now if this is true then it would be the MOTHER of all Documentaries and will have done what the ENTIRE U.S. Goverment couldn't or wouldn't do.

i don't think it's real, but if it is that's awesome! i either think bin laden is dead or the u.s. is hiding him secretly to keep the war going.

OMG, if this IS real. Morgan Spurlock is my hero in life. I, myself, would be forever in debt to him. As would the rest of the U.S.

Isn't the reward for osama worth more than what they could ever profit?

If the Guy from "Super Size Me" died within the year or so and the documentary footage was lost forever, I wont be surprised one bit.

If not and this thing is the real deal, there is going to be a huge outrage. There isn't a word that can be used to signify how damaging this could be for bush and his gang.

Wouldn't he be forced to turn the evidence over to the government if this was real?

Would it be treasonist if this guy really did find and interview Osama Bin Laden and didn't turn him in?

Well, in a certain way, kind of but he is a journalist in a sense and they have to keep confidentiality. Osama doesn't pose the kind of threat that, let's say, a mass murderer who has killed over 20 people poses.

Osama himself isn't actually performing these acts. He just stands there and plays the role of leader. If Osama were to die or be killed, there would just be another person that would take over.
