The former Navy SEAL who has written his eyewitness account of the slaying of Osama bin Laden is in talks with Steven Spielberg to turn the book into an action movie, Page Six can exclusively reveal.
The author, who uses the pseudonym Mark Owen, was “one of the first men through the door on the third floor” of bin Laden’s lair in Pakistan and was there when he died, according to publisher Dutton.
The book — “No Easy Day: The Firsthand Account of the Mission That Killed Osama bin Laden — will be released on Sept. 11.
The film, if completed, will be the third movie dealing with the successful raid that killed the terrorist mastermind. “Zero Dark Thirty” and “Code Name: Geronimo,” both scheduled for a late 2012 release, also deal directly with that topic.
