BEIJING, May 3 (Xinhuanet) -- The filmmakers behind "The Hurt Locker" have been moving forward with an action thriller about bin Laden's killing after the real-life operation took place in Pakistan on Sunday.

Kathryn Bigelow, who won an Academy Award for her 2008 film "The Hurt Locker," is already working with her team on a movie about the Al Qaeda leader's death, media report on Tuesday.

The project is provisionally entitled "Kill Bin Laden," based on a previous botched attempt to get the Al Qaeda leader, according to the Hollywood Reporter industry daily.

Bigelow and her screenwriting collaborator Mark Boal -- who worked with her on "The Hurt Locker" -- have been meeting with actors for the action thriller project, when Sunday's shock development occurred.

Now that terrorist has been killed, she could rethink about the movie and it would be more relevant than ever, a person close to the filmmakers said Monday.

U.S. special forces killed bin Laden in a mansion outside the Pakistani capital Islamabad, nearly 10 years after the 9/11 terrorist attacks.
