Starring as Chief Warrant Officer Roy Miller, Matt Damon travels to Iraq on a mission to uncover weapons of mass destruction only to find that his life is in jeopardy.
Universal Pictures has brought forth the first trailer for its forthcoming thriller "Green Zone". Debuted at Yahoo! Movies, the promo video features glimpses of Matt Damon as Chief Warrant Officer Roy Miller, Greg Kinnear as CIA officer Clark Poundstone and Amy Ryan as The Wall Street Journal's foreign correspondent Lawrie Dayne.
Set in the chaotic early days of the Iraqi War, Roy Miller and his team of Army inspectors were dispatched to find weapons of mass destruction believed to be stockpiled in the Iraqi desert. Going from one booby-trapped and treacherous site to the next, the men stumble upon an elaborate cover-up that inverts the purpose of their mission instead of finding deadly chemical agents.
Soon, Miller finds himself in a world where no one could be trusted and every decision could detonate unforeseen consequences. Still, he faces the danger head on. And, through covert and faulty intelligence hidden on foreign soil, he hunts for answers that will either clear a rogue regime or escalate a war in an unstable region.
Targeting a March 12, 2010 U.S. release, "Green Zone" sees the re-teaming of Matt Damon and director Paul Greengrass following their last collaboration in 2007's "The Bourne Ultimatum". It is based on the 2006 book "Imperial Life in the Emerald City" by journalist Rajiv Chandrasekaran. Brendan Gleeson, Jason Isaacs and Khalid Abdalla are in supporting roles.
