Don't count out that Osama Bin Laden film from Oscar-winning team Mark Boal and Kathryn Bigelow yet: Turns out Boal was tracking the very same team that performed the surgical strike.

It's a lucky break for the filmmaker who can now incorporate a dramatic, real-life ending instead of the original script about a failed mission. Sources close to Boal -- a former investigative journalist -- report he will "definitely" include the 40-minute firefight at the Pakistan compound in which Navy SEALs successfully found and killed the most wanted terrorist in the world.

The timing works very well, as Bigelow and Boal's project was slated to go into production this summer. Casting, had just begun, will now await a finalized script.
