Treehouse Pictures is fully financing the film, which Gordon has shepherded from its inception.
The movie is based on Roessner’s experience as a machine gunner in Iraq’s Sunni Triangle.
The story centres on Matt Ocre (Hoult), who is part of a mission to repair a broken water system in the dangerous and unstable Iraqi village of Baqubah.
While the people of Baghdad welcome the Americans as saviors, the villagers resist their presence and Matt and his unit must try to convince the community that they are part of the solution, not the problem, in order to save the town and get out alive.
