"Osama will die again" is the tagline for a new zombie film starring the world's most well known terrorist, Osama bin Laden.

Osombie, due for release later this year, is about a group of special forces sent to Iraq to hunt down zombie insurgents.

The Daily Mail reported that Osombie was filmed in Utah, and also followed a character called Dusty, who was trying to save her brother Derek, a conspiracy theorist who believed bin Laden was still alive.

Despite using a cast of relative unknowns, executive producer Kynan Griffin believe the film had high production standards.

"We've just had a lot of fun with it," Griffin told ABC News.

"We had some great special effects makeup people that had done a lot of Hollywood work. Lots of actions, lots of zombie violence."

After years of hiding, Bin Laden was killed on May 2 last year, when American Navy Seals and CIA operatives stormed a residential compound in Pakistan.

Bin Laden claimed responsibility for the September 11, 2001 Twin Tower attacks in America.

The Hurt Locker director Kathryn Bigelow is also working on an as-yet unnamed film about Osama bin Laden.
