Jessica Biel, Christina Ricci and Curtis “50 Cent” Johnson are joining Samuel L. Jackson and Brian Presley in director Irwin Winkler’s Iraqi wartime drama Home of the Brave for Winkler’s production company and Emmett/Furla Films.
The story, from a screenplay by Mark Friedman, revolves around three soldiers who struggle to readjust to normal life after returning home from a lengthy tour in Iraq. Jackson will play a doctor who tries to resume his routine, only to find himself unraveling.
Financed by Avi Lerner’s Millennium Films and Emmett/Furla, the independent film is budgeted at $12 million. Winkler will begin shooting next month in Morocco. Production will then move to Spokane, Wash. (Source)
