I was at Sundance in 2004 when Morgan Spurlock took over the festival with his documentary Super Size Me. Four years later, Spurlock returns to Park City with Where In The World Is Osama Bin Laden?, a film documenting the director’s search for the most wanted man on the planet. The Weinstein Co quickly snapped up the documentary, after seeing only 15 minutes at the Berlin Film Festival. Distributors who saw the footage were asked to sign draconian nondisclosure agreements.

Many people are speculating that Spurlock may have done what the U.S. government has been unable to do, and actually found Bin Laden. The film’s director of photography, Daniel Marricone added fuel to the fire, telling the press that Spurlock “definitely got the holy grail.” Not much information has leaked about the film, and even the director is keeping quiet. When asked if the rumors, Spurlock would only say “Until there’s something to see, why talk about it?”

The photo above is the first thing to be released from the production. Spurlock shot nearly 800 hours of digital footage while exploring “every nook and cranny of the Middle East” on a quest. I found a video clip on YouTube of Spurlock talking about the film at the 2007 South By Southwest Film Festival. Watch that clip below.

Hum, did someone who made one decent documentary find Osama Bin Laden? Yeah, sure he did. At least thats what he wants people to think. Nice marketing gimmick.

No he didn't. Supposedly the doc is a mish mash of themes and ideas and doesn't focus on any one subject. Unfortunately I've heard the end result is pretty downright bad, since it looks like Morgan's ego has taken over and he believes that anything he throws together will be quality.

Now I don't know for certain obviously but its just what I've read.
 
It's all bait and switch. It was confirmed it's all B.S.. By B.S. I mean there is no actual search or find. It's just a bad attempt at 'comedy'.
