Behind-the-Scenes Featurette on 'Green Zone'

A new featurette that takes us behind the scenes of Paul Greengrass’ "Green Zone" has just been released by Universal. If you found the previous trailers too heavy on action and not heavy enough on story, then this featurette will help remedy that.

Greengrass and star Matt Damon talk at different points during a viewing of the trailer and explain the type of movie it is, hinting at where the story goes, what their aims for it were and how it compares to the "Bourne" films they worked on together.

Official synopsis:
During the U.S.-led occupation of Baghdad in 2003, Chief Warrant Officer Roy Miller (Damon) and his team of Army inspectors were dispatched to find weapons of mass destruction believed to be stockpiled in the Iraqi desert. Rocketing from one booby-trapped and treacherous site to the next, the men search for deadly chemical agents but stumble instead upon an elaborate cover-up that inverts the purpose of their mission.

Spun by operatives with intersecting agendas, Miller must hunt through covert and faulty intelligence hidden on foreign soil for answers that will either clear a rogue regime or escalate a war in an unstable region. And at this blistering time and in this combustible place, he will find the most elusive weapon of all is the truth.

Admittedly, the film still looks like “Bourne in Iraq,” but with those involved on both sides of the camera, and with the subject matter, is that really a major surprise? And an even better question – is that really a bad thing?

"Green Zone" is directed by Greengrass and is based on the book "Imperial Life in the Emerald City" by Rajiv Chandrasekaran. Alongside Damon it co-stars Jason Isaacs, Brendan Gleeson, Greg Kinnear and Amy Ryan.

It’s set to hit theaters on March 12, 2010.
