Netflix picks up Russo Brothers-produced Iraq drama ‘Mosul’


PTI, Oct 11, 2020, 1:52 PM IST

Los Angeles: Iraq drama “Mosul,” produced by “Avengers: Endgame” directors Anthony and Joe Russo, has been acquired by Netflix and will release on the streamer in November.

The film marks the feature directorial debut of Matthew Carnahan, who is known for co-writing action films like “World War Z” and “21 Bridges”. Carnahan has also penned the script.

According to Deadline, 101 Studios was set to release the movie this year, but theatrical plans did not pan out in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic.

“Mosul” is based on the true events of the Nineveh SWAT team, a renegade police unit who waged a guerrilla operation against ISIS in a desperate struggle to save their home city of Mosul.

The movie was inspired by Luke Mogelson’s 2017 piece for The New Yorker, “The Desperate Battle to Destroy ISIS”.

Russo Brothers and Mike Larocca have produced the film for AGBO alongside The New Yorker Studios. Jeremy Steckler is also a producer.

“Mosul” had its world premiere at Venice Film Festival last year, followed by bowing at the Toronto International Film Festival. Chris Hemsworth-starrer “Extraction,” backed by the Russos, also released on Netflix in April.
