Dreamachine pick up ‘Haditha’

Dreamachine snap up Nick Broomfield Iraq war pic

LONDON — Nick Broomfield’s Iraq War drama “Battle for Haditha” has been picked up for international sales by Dreamachine.

Pic, currently shooting in Jordan, is based on real events which took place in Iraq in 2005, when U.S. marines carried out a brutal retaliation against a village after their convoy was bombed by insurgents.

The drama, featuring a cast of unknown actors including Iraqis and former marines, is wholly improvised, based on a detailed treatment by Broomfield and his co-producer Anna Telford.

Financing comes from Channel 4 and Broomfield’s own company Lafayette Films.
