Jason Isaacs Joins Paul Greengrass Thriller


Jason Isaacs has joined the cast of the untitled “Green Zone” thriller directed by Paul Greengrass, reports Variety.

The Working Title/Universal Pictures project, written by Brian Helgeland, stars Matt Damon, Greg Kinnear and Amy Ryan, and is currently shooting in Spain.

It’s a fictionalized drama set in Iraq after the defeat of Saddam Hussein, inspired by Rajiv Chandrasekaran’s book “Imperial Life in the Emerald City: Inside Baghdad’s Green Zone” about the blunders of U.S. administrators in attempting to reconstruct the country.

Isaacs will play an American military officer.

Antoni Corone was previously cast as a colonel. Working Title partners Tim Bevan and Eric Fellner are producing with Lloyd Levin.
