In Gallery Zero Dark Thirty

Jessica Chastain has arrived in India to start shooting Kathryn Bigelow’s film about Osama bin Laden. She and Venezuelan actor Edgar Ramirez are set to film the thriller in Chandigarh, India, despite Hindu radicals protesting against the portrayal of Pakistan on Indian soil.

The movie, which also stars Mark Strong, Joel Edgerton and Kyle Chandler, will focus on Navy SEAL Team Six’s capture of the Al Qaeda leader, in Abbottabad, Pakistan. Zero Dark Thirty, directed by Oscar-winning Hurt Locker filmmaker Kathryn, is expected to be released later this year.
