We don't know, but we're sure to find out in a little over a month from now as Morgan Spurlock's Where in the World is Osama Bin Laden is scheduled to premiere at the 2008 Sundance Film Festival. It's taken some time to get a new feature doc out of Spurlock, who arrived on the scene in a Big (Mac) way following his break-out hit Super Size Me. Since then, he's shelled out a couple seasons of the very entertaining TV show 30 Days, as well as attached himself as producer to docs like What Would Jesus Buy. Above is our first look at the new Spurlock film, which follows the filmmaker as he attempts what the United States government hasn't been able to do: Find the elusive and infamous Osama Bin Laden.
The film first screened for a select group of buyers earlier this year at the Berlin International Film Festival. At the time, it was the talk of the town (mainly because those in attendance were asked to sign some insane confidentiality agreement) -- and I remember the buzz could be heard in front of every screening for the next several days. Eventually, The Weinstein Co. wound up with the doc and, according to some involved, Spurlock uncovered some insane stuff. But did he find Bin Laden? I, personally, cannot wait to find out. Currently, no release date is scheduled, though we'll have a full review of the film once our Cinematical team arrives in Park City, Utah next month.
