Kathryn Bigelow is getting ready to start shooting her next indie flick now that she has secured financing from Annapurna Pictures which is run by Megan Ellison.
The pic written by Mark Boal will shoot in the summer and is still being written. Here’s a description from Variety:
Project is based on the true story of a U.S. military black ops mission, the ramifications of which are still being felt around the world.
Rumors are that it is about the mission to capture Osama Bin Laden.
Glad she is getting back behind the camera. Bigelow and Boal are turning into quite an interesting team.
A very talented painter, Kathryn spent two years at the San Francisco Art Institute. At 20, she won a scholarship to the Whitney Museum’s Independent Study Program. She was given a studio in a former Offtrack Betting building, literally in a vault, where she made art and waited to be criticized by people like Richard Serra, Robert Rauschenberg and Susan Sontag. She later graduated from Ivy League’s Columbia University School of Arts in 1979. She was also a member of the British avant-garde cultural group, Art and Language. Kathryn is the only child of the manager of a paint factory and a librarian.
