Where in the World?

Since I saw Morgan Spurlock's Super Size Me, I have literally never set foot inside a McDonald's restaurant. I haven't visited a Burger King, KFC or any other fast food restaurant for that matter.

Spurlock's new film is called Where in the World Is Osama bin Laden? Here he talks to The Guardian about it.

"After Super Size Me, I remember sitting down in 2005 and thinking about what to do next," says Spurlock, in his sing-song timbre. Then he noticed a resurgence of media interest in Bin Laden. "People were asking why we couldn't find him," he says. An idea was planted. When Spurlock ran into a like-minded venture capitalist called Adam Dell, who became executive producer on the film, the adventure began, with $3m in backing from French financiers.

Down below Spurlock speaks to the Wall Street Journal at Sundance.
