Hollywood Is Worried About Osama bin-Laden Films
Two films have been made in Hollywood dealing with the mission to kill al-Qaeda chief Osama bin Laden and they are due for release at the end of this year.
However, Hollywood producers are worried that these films might incite further violence against America by the muslim world, particularly in the wake of violent protests across the Muslim world against an anti-Islam film Innocence of Muslims made by an obscure Coptic christian.
While one studio has asked an Islamic cleric to vet its script, while senior executives at another have entered into intense briefing sessions with Department of State officials to minimise or expunge any content that could be deemed offensive.
Protests against the film Innocence of Muslims turned violent across the Muslim countries and US Ambassador to Libya, Chris Stevens, and other four officials were killed in an attack on the American mission in Benghazi.
