  • Green Zone is a 2010 British-French-American war thriller film directed by Paul Greengrass. The storyline was conceived from a screenplay written by Brian Helgeland, based on a 2006 non-fiction book Imperial Life in the Emerald City by journalist Rajiv Chandrasekaran. The book documented life within the Green Zone in Baghdad during the 2003 invasion of Iraq. The key players in the film are General Mohammed Al-Rawi, who is hiding in Baghdad during the invasion of Iraq and U.S. Army Chief Warrant Officer Roy Miller, who is searching for Iraqi weapons of mass destruction. Miller finds that the majority of the intel given to him is inaccurate. Moreover, Miller's efforts to find the true story about the weapons are blocked by Pentagon official Clark Poundstone. The cast also features Brendan Gleeson, Amy Ryan, Khalid Abdalla and Jason Isaacs. The film was produced by Working Title Films, with financial backing from Universal Pictures, StudioCanal, Relativity Media, Antena 3 Films and Dentsu. Principal photography for the film project began during January 2008 in Spain, later moving to Morocco and the United Kingdom.
