"Casualties of War" helmer Brian De Palma is returning to depict the reality of war in "Redacted."
Determines to tackle the same subject matter as his 1989 effort "Casualties of War", director Brian De Palma is about to re-visit the theme with a new project entitled "Redacted", Production Weekly has learned.
Slated to enter production by early April, the feature will be based on the recent events surrounding the rape and murder of a 14-year old Iraqi girl also the killing of three of her family members by four U.S soldiers. So far, there are no cast members and writer attached yet.
In addition, Production Weekly also reports that the film, unlike "Casualties" is going to be heavily steeped in real information using the approach to real-life narrative similar to that applied in "The Queen." It will also employ news broadcasts, trial coverage, and Internet video from YouTube as well as one of the solder's video blogs.
