Joel Edgerton & Mr. Will-W. - April 2010
2012 will be Joel Edgerton's year.  Mark these words.  The brilliant and always hard-hitting Australian Actor has just officially been cast in first female Oscar-winning Director Katyhrn Bigelow's (The Hurt Locker) next Film about the hunt for Osama bin Laden.  The Film was in-development prior to that one's death in May 2011 and has been re-written to include updates.

There is however, a bit of controversy though surrounding the Film from Sony Pictures as there are allegations that Bigelow may have been given access to highly-guarded information about Seal Team 6, which executed the anti-terrorist Mission.  The matter currently is being investigated by U.S. government officials, which possibly could delay or thwart completely its October 2012 release.  A couple working titles for the Project are Kill bin Laden and Seal Team 6.  It is said to star Rooney Mara, Guy Pearce, Idris Elba and more.

Edgerton despite turning down a Prequel to 300, will be seen this year in Baz Luhrmann's big-budget The Great Gatsby 3-D from Warner Bros. and also Disney's The Odd Life of Timothy Green.  His Agent definitely deserves a pat on the back, wouldn't you agree? He also can be seen in Aussie Thriller Wish You Were Here alongside Teresa Palmer.
