MATT Damon and director Paul Greengrass revisit their successful Bourne action formula in GREEN ZONE (15).

Army chief warrant officer Roy Miller (Damon) and his team of inspectors have been dispatched by their commanders to find weapons 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 instead stumble upon an elaborate cover-up that subverts the purpose of their mission.

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.

"In my experience, thrillers are at their best when they're in extreme environments where the moral challenges are acute."

"And it was just as obvious to us that the challenge was whether we could make an authentic and believable thriller there."

Greg Kinnear, Brendan Gleeson, Khalid Abdalla and Jason Isaacs also star.
