Indiana Jones Liberates Fallujah

Meanwhile in the pop culture department, the Hollywood Dream machine has joined the war on Iraq. Universal Pictures has announced it will produce No True Glory: Battle for Fallujah starring Harrison Ford. I’m not kidding. The film will be based on the yet unfinished book No True Glory: The Battle for Fallujah by former marine and now embedded reporter, Bing West. Harrison Ford, who of course played the ridiculously macho Indiana Jones in the Raiders of the Lost Ark series, gets to play General Jim Mattis, leader of the U.S. assault on Fallujah. The film is slated for release in 2008. It sounds as if Univeral is trying to outdo John Wayne’s 1968 Vietnam war propaganda classic, The Green Berets. If my memory serves me well, the U.S. didn’t win that war.

UPDATE: As of 2013, the film remains unmade.
