Harrison Ford to Go to Iraq

by | December 16, 2004 | Comments

Harrison Ford will take part in a war drama based on ex-Marine Bing West’s novel titled "No True Glory: The Battle for Fallujah," Variety reports. The movie "will use the Fallujah assault as a way to explore the dangerous intersection of war and politics, depicting the drama from the viewpoints of soldiers, military leaders and politicians." Ford will play the role of General Jim Mattis, who is ordered to lead an assault on the insurgent stronghold in Fallujah where four Americans were mutilated and hanged. Just 48 hours away from taking control of the city, he is ordered to withdraw, then ordered back to finish the job six months later. No word on when the film will go into production.
