Brian De Palma Helming Redacted

ON

Production Weekly reports that Brian De Palma will direct Redacted, a film based on the recent events surrounding the rape and murder of a 14-year-old Iraqi girl, and the killing of three of her family members by four U.S. soldiers.

The soldiers were sleep-deprived and living on energy drinks and sleeping pills in a situation where anyone outside the fence was considered the enemy.

The film’s narrative will be told using a mixture of video from news broadcasts, documentary footage, trial coverage, YouTube posts and excerpts from one of the soldier’s video blogs.

De Palma is scheduled to begin production early April.
