Chris Pratt in talks for Kathryn Bigelow's KILL BIN LADEN

One of my favorite comedies on TV is NBC’s Parks and Recreation so I was pleased to hear the following news. Twitch reports that Chris Pratt (Moneyball) is currently in talks to take the lead in Kathryn Bigelow’s upcoming untitled real-life action drama once called Kill Bin Laden.

The film has been in production before US forces actually killed Bin Laden so The Hurt Locker director had to recraft the script. There were also some allegations that the Obama administration has been illegally sharing classified information with the filmmakers about the actual operation. This may force the release date to be pushed back until after the next federal election.

Joel Edgerton was at one point cast in the film but dropped out over scheduling conflicts. There have since been rumors that Tom Hardy, Guy Pearce and Idris Elba were circling the film. As Twitch points out, Pratt is the only American of the bunch, which is interesting. Producers are now aiming for a February start to production.
What are your thoughts on Pratt taking on a badass role like this? Do you think he can pull it off?
