Joel EdgertonThe question surrounding Kathryn Bigelow's next film, titled "Kill Bin Laden," is no longer "Will they still make it?" Rather, it's a question of who will star in it, and Joel Edgerton has helped to answer that.

According to the Los Angeles Times, Edgerton has signed on for the film, which chronicles a failed mission to kill the terrorist leader in 2001. In it, he'll reportedly play a special operative that's part of an ensemble of male commandos. But, it's not the only high-profile project the actor's name is attached to.

The LA Times also writes that Edgerton is on the short-list of actors considered for "The Hunger Games." (Could he be Haymitch? President Snow?) And while Edgerton is widely in demand, the star isn't saying yes to everything that comes his way. The article also notes that he allegedly turned down the chance to play opposite Kristen Stewart in "Snow White and the Huntsman."

Check out the rest of Friday's biggest casting news in Hollywood, including the all-star cast to bring "Lincoln" to the masses.
