Has Morgan Spurlock Found Osama Bin Laden?


By Josh Tyler: 2007-12-04

If Michael Moore is America’s number one documentary filmmaker, then after releasing Super Size Me Morgan Spurlock definitely became number 2. Except while Moore makes more point of view movies, Spurlock’s work is a lot closer to being what we think of when throwing around the word “documentary”.

His next project is by far, his riskiest yet. Spurlock has finished his new movie Where in the World is Osama Bin Laden?, in which he sets out to do what the United States government has apparently failed to do: Find Osama Bin Laden. The Weinstein Company bought the thing after seeing only 15 minutes of it at the Berlin Film Festival, and here’s where it gets really interesting. Rumor has it that Spurlock actually found Osama Bin Laden.

The film’s director of photography told SlashFilm that Morgan “definitely got the holy grail.” Since the movie is about him hunting Osama, that would make him the holy grail… wouldn’t it? For now though, everyone around the production is keeping things locked down.

The film is supposed to debut in Park City at Sundance this year, and since tomorrow is the deadline for them to notify people who have received press credentials and I still haven’t heard anything, I guess I won’t be able to report back on it. I’m sure someone more important than us will. Whenever we all finally get around to seeing it, I can’t even begin to imagine the media madness this film will unleash if Morgan Spurlock actually found and hung out with Osama Bin Laden. It instantly raises a lot of important questions like... if mustachioed Morgan Spurlock can find him, don’t you have to assume the US government isn’t even trying?

Admission of Apathy

"The most important thing is for us to find Osama bin Laden. It is our number one priority and we will not rest until we find him."
- G.W. Bush, 9/13/01

"I want justice...There's an old poster out West, as I recall, that said, 'Wanted: Dead or Alive,'"
- G.W. Bush, 9/17/01, UPI

"I don't know where bin Laden is. I have no idea and really don't care. It's not that important. It's not our priority."
- G.W. Bush, 3/13/02

"I am truly not that concerned about him."
- G.W. Bush, repsonding to a question about bin Laden's whereabouts,
3/13/02 (The New American, 4/8/02)

Aaaaaand the kicker...

"Gosh, I just don't think I ever said I'm not worried about Osama bin Laden. It's kind of one of those exaggerations."
-October 13th, 2004, Presidential Debate

on a side note, an interview with us may or may not be in this movie.

With all due respect Dylan...

....the "kicker" (for me anyway) is the video of Porter Goss laughing when Bush is telling reporters about how he's trying to hunt Bin Laden down (paraphrase).


(I just tried to watch it and it says it is not currently available...maybe someone has this elsewhere?...sorry....)

9/11 Truth ends the 9/11 Wars

Here's a recap look at it

you are featured in a serious context, and not as a jokey example of other "crazies" who went looking for Bin Laden.

Great way to sell a film!!

gotta hand it to them!!!

a video of him talking about the up coming film.,

Spurlock talking about the film at the 2007 South By Southwest Film Festival.

well I would suspect this is going to be quite interesting,. If OBL was somehow behind the 9/11 attacks there sure is a lack of any evidence to it,. infact all the evidence points to the conclution that the PNAC neo-cons pulled 9/11 to move america away from freedom and towards a corparate/fascist security state,. . with unlimited millitary contracts to hand out to all they buddies,. . and no regulations on corporate coruption and the systems of american radical consumerism that brings planetary devistation. but that could just be my reading of it,. .

Maybe Morgan Spurlock IS Osama Bin Laden

This guy looks more like Osama Bin Laden than that "Fat Osama" that was the only "Osama" to try to claim credit for 9/11. All the other Osamas said someone else was responsible for 9/11.


Cool, this is my video.

Osama 2.0?

This would be quite an opportunity for intelligence assets to roll out the new and improved Osamabot. Are there actors out there that would agree to play the boogie man? (actors aren't as smart as the characters they pretend to be)

OR -- perhaps he found bin Laden's GRAVE?

Actually, Morgan Spurlock's "Holy Grail" would be...

...filming Osama Bin Laden eating a Super-Size Big Mac Extra Value Meal.

That might explain something

If viewed in the context of 'Super Size Me,' we might then at least have some idea of just how he came to put on so much weight at the time of the 'confession video'.

and lets not forget

kidney failure and dialysis
Physics/Science/Mathematics do not lie, only people do.
9/11 was an INSIDE JOB

US Gov isn't trying

My vote

Morgan Rocks...

He sure does get involved in his work. His poor girlfriend/wife must be pulling her hair out. This guy is balls to the wall kamikaze nuts if he actually tracked Bin Laden. If true, this would safely be the biggest thing ever caught on film. Other than catching Aliens land or Bigfoot playing with his kids.

Funny part is, this might of been safer than eating McPukalds every day for months. ; [ .

Before you celebrate, verify...

One thing worries me.
"The Weinstein Company bought the thing after seeing only 15 minutes of it at the Berlin Film Festival..."
now, what does that really mean? Bought the whole rights for global distribution? Distribution in some regions? Bought distribution rights for a period of time? Bought the film itself, lock stock and barrel?

My real concern is, who is this company, what's their track record, and how much did they buy it for? Would anyone buy a film like this just to sit on it?

If so, are there any other stray copies that could show up after a ploy like that becomes apparent... to virally dodge any attempt at keeping a too-interesting film in the can permanently?

This sounds like a documentary-producer that would be too smart for such a move, no doubt he knows his industry. Still... sounds like a nice target for virtual joint research project.

Who they are

The Weinsteins put out Michael Moore's Sicko under their new production company, The Weinstein Company. Previously, they had bought back the rights to Fahrenheit 9/11 at Miramax (the first production company they started) after their parent company, Disney, decided not to distribute it. They're the reason it got into theaters.


D & A - Did you used to comment @ Unclaimed Territory

pre-Salon move?! I liked your comments and if I recall you had a blog too...but I don't think you used to be a 'Truther'. I love yr screen name and totally remember very intelligent comments coming from it, if it's you. I've never seen you here, so...hi...that's all.

Peace Out


PS - I am still a Glenn Greenwald fan but dude has to start talking 9/11 Truth if he wants me to start reading him regularly again!

Obviously anyone who eats

Obviously anyone who eats only McDonald's for a month without exercising is going to gain weight and become unhealthier. Thanks, Captain Obvious.

This is nothing more than a money-making ploy. Anyone who believes otherwise is naive.


You missed the whole point of the film

Try viewing again later with more of an open mind and objective critical eye.

Your response and reaction is typical of some "types" of people. (and I don't, necessarily, mean that negatively or derogatorily)
