"Samuel L. Jackson will topline director Irwin Winkler’s Iraqi wartime drama "Home of the Brave" for Winkler’s production company and Emmett/Furla Films.

Story, from a screenplay by Mark Friedman, revolves around three soldiers who struggle to readjust to normal life after returning home from a lengthy tour in Iraq. Jackson will play a doctor who tries to resume his routine, only to find himself unraveling.

Winkler will begin shooting next month in Morocco. Production will then move to Spokane, Wash.
