Hollywood's Ode to Obama May Not Hit Theaters Until He Hits the Bricks

The plan to release a movie about the killing of Osama bin Laden next October right before the election, one that was sure to depict Obama as the hero of the story, may be changing.  The movie may not hit theaters until after Obama is voted out:
The fuss over whether Sony Pictures and the filmmakers Mark Boal and Kathryn Bigelow were playing politics when they scheduled their hunt-for-Bin Laden film for release on Oct. 12, shortly before next year’s presidential election, may soon be irrelevant. Sony is planning to move the as-yet untitled film until after the election, according to two people who were briefed on the studio’s plans. But both said the picture is now virtually certain to appear after the election, and might not be released until early in 2013.
I wonder if this movie will even be made? A movie that shows our military conducting heroic actions for the benefit of mankind is not something that Hollywood likes to make these days. And perhaps the attention given to this project has made it clear it won't help Obama's re-election chances...so why make it?
