The 'Moneyball' actor is in negotiations to take on the lead role in the true life action drama that follows the U.S. force's hunt of the al Qaeda leader, which is formerly known as 'Kill Bin Laden'.

Chris Pratt might hunt down notorious terrorist Osama Bin Ladin in his next movie. Twitch reported that the "Moneyball" actor is in talks to tackle the lead role in director Kathryn Bigelow's yet-to-be titled true life action drama about the U.S.'s hunt of Bin Laden.

Previously, Joel Edgerton was eyed for the lead role before he turned down the offer due to scheduling conflict. Should Pratt sign to the project, he will join Jason Clarke who has been cast for an undisclosed role. A number of actors have also been rumored to be offered the supporting roles. They include Tom Hardy, Idris Elba, Guy Pearce and Jennifer Ehle.

The movie about bin Laden raid was previously developed under the working title "Kill Bin Laden", but it is currently untitled. Bigelow and screenwriter Mark Boal have been working on the project even before the al Qaeda leader was murdered in a massive attack by the U.S. army in Abbottabad, Pakistan last May.

After being long delayed, the based-on-true-story drama is set to kick off the production in February 2012. It is expected to open in theaters across the U.S. on December 19, 2012.
