Amy Ryan set for Greengrass thriller

Director Paul Greengrass has set Amy Ryan and Greg Kinnear to star alongside Matt Damon in the untitled Iraq war thriller that begins shooting today in Spain for Universal Pictures. The movie is inspired by Rajiv Chandrasekaran’s nonfiction book “Imperial Life in the Emerald City: Inside Iraq’s Green Zone.” Greengrass and Brian Helgeland turned the premise into a fictional thriller set in the “Green Zone,” a walled and fortified area where U.S. troops stay during the Iraq occupation. Damon plays an officer who teams with a senior CIA officer to search for evidence of weapons of mass destruction.
