Robert O'Neill, the Navy SEAL Team 6 operator who fired the shot that killed Osama Bin Laden during the May 2011 Abbottabad, Pakistan raid, recently signed a movie deal with Universal Studios to base a film on his best-selling biography.
The rights to the film were obtained by Universal Pictures and Broadway Video, owned by SNL creator Lorne Michaels, Deadline originally reported on Feb. 7. Titled The Operator: Firing the Shots That Killed Osama Bin Laden and My Years as a SEAL Team Warrior, the film is based on O'Neill's biography of the same name.
Robert O'Neill, the SEAL Team 6 veteran who gained fame after publicly claiming he killed Osama bin Laden, once said that he wanted his new book “The Operators” to show the “the human side” of his career with the elite Naval Special Warfare Group. But the most enthralling moment from the guaranteed bestseller focuses on a brutal death: the shots that wiped Osama bin Laden from the face of the planet.
The man who claims he was the SEAL Team 6 operator who shot Osama bin Laden in 2011 has authored a new book, and the retelling of that raid shows the real reason why photos of the terror leader's body were never released.
Fox Business host Stuart Varney had his mind officially blown on Feb. 16 when Robert O’Neill, the former Navy SEAL who killed Osama bin Laden, revealed himself as a supporter of women in special operations.
