Jackson and veteran filmmaker Irwin Winkler."Home of the Brave" will tell the tale of three American soldiers who return home from the war in Iraq, only to discover that getting their old lives back on track is a whole lot tougher than it sounds.

"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.
