LOS ANGELES (AP) - Kathryn Bigelow and Mark Boal’s movie about the Black Ops hunt for Osama Bin Laden is set for release next year.

Columbia Pictures, which acquired the domestic distribution rights to the film earlier this week, says the untitled movie will come out at the end of 2012.

Bigelow and Boal each won a pair of Oscars for producing, directing and writing last year’s best picture, “The Hurt Locker.” The two began developing the film about the Black Ops’ mission to capture Bin Laden in 2008.

Co-Chairman of Sony Pictures Entertainment Amy Pascal says Bigelow and Boal “have an outstanding perspective on the team that was hunting the most wanted man in the world.”
