The Boys of Abu Ghraib, NM Bound

Posted by on June 10, 2011 | Comments Off on The Boys of Abu Ghraib, NM Bound


Garret Dillahunt (Raising Hope, Winter’s Bone) has been cast in Luke Moran’s upcoming indie film The Boys of Abu Ghriab.

“Boys” is the story of “a U.S. soldier at the infamous Iraq prison who befriends a detainee accused of murder.” Production is set to begin here in New Mexico in the next few weeks.

“Based on the true events that occurred at Abu Ghraib in 2003, the film is about a group of young soldiers thrown into a hellish environment, with little but each other to help them cope with the challenges they face.” – Luke Moran

Dillahunt is no stranger to New Mexico, home of his mystified Deputy Wendall opposite Tommy Lee Jones in the epic Coen Bros. NM movie No Country for Old Men and as a star in the short lived NM television production Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles.
