Gleeson Joins Damon for Greengrass Thriller
12 Mar 2008 :
Brendan Gleeson
Irish actor Brendan Gleeson (In Bruges, Beowulf) will join Matt Damon (The Bourne Identity) in a new thriller directed by Paul Greengrass (The Bourne Ultimatum, United 93) for Universal and Working Title.

The as-yet-untitled film is based on Rajiv Chanrasekaran’s book ‘Imperial Life in the Emerald City’, with the film script penned by Brian Helgeland (Man on Fire, Mystic River).

The drama focuses on the dichotomy between the Green Zone, where troops are housed, and the streets of Baghdad after the overthrow of Saddam Hussein. Gleeson plays an American soldier in the film.

Greg Kinnear (Little Miss Sunshine), Amy Ryan (Gone Baby Gone) and Jason Isaacs (Brotherhood) also star in the pic, which is currently in production in Spain.

Gleeson is currently gracing Irish cinema screens opposite Colin Farrell in Martin McDonagh’s ‘In Bruges’.
