Zero Dark Thirty screenwriter Mark Boal is still defending his story about capturing and killing Osama Bin Laden.
In an interview with the Wall Street Journal, Boal said: "I think it's my right, by the way, if I firmly believe that [Osama] Bin Laden was killed by aliens, to depict that. And I should be able to put on there, 'This is 100 percent true and anyone who doubts it is themselves abducted by aliens'...without a Senate investigation into where I got that notion. Right? In this country, isn't that legit?"
He believes those politicians opposing the film are solely using it as a "publicity tool."
He elaborates, adding, "Now does that mean they can use the movie as a political platform to talk about what they've been wanting to talk about for years and years and years? Do I think that Feinstein used the movie as a publicity tool to get a conversation going about her report? I believe it."
However, despite how some politicians may feel about the film, it's clear the Academy appreciates it.
