Paramount Halts Production On Bin Laden Life Story

LOS ANGELES (CAP) - Executives at Paramount Pictures have confirmed that the company has stopped filming an upcoming big screen adaptation of the life of Osama bin Laden. Tentatively titled bin Laden's Song, the film's premise was based on the recent assumption that bin Laden actually died back in August.

"Well, that's the last time I take my queue from the French," said Ross Lipsom, manager of Paramount's International Interactive arm. "We're looking at possible alternate endings, but if he's really still alive, it's just not as touching."

The film stars Ted McGinley as the erstwhile terrorist who battles against the odds to make a name for himself in a vocation not revered by most of society. McGinley said the writers took a few liberties in telling the story.

The film stars Ted McGinley as the erstwhile terrorist who battles against the odds to make a name for himself in a vocation not revered by most of society. McGinley said the writers took a few liberties in telling the story.

"Obviously we don't know what's going on inside his head," McGinley told Entertainment Weekly. "But you have to figure he's fighting some sort of demons. I think I did a pretty good job capturing that."

Others in the cast include Alec Baldwin as the now-deceased Abu Musab Al-Zarqawi, Dylan McDermott as Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld, and Laura Linney as the love interest. Ron Howard was tapped to direct the film.

Lipsom said Paramount was hoping for a Christmastime 2007 release but may have to delay that depending on the state of bin Laden's demise.
