Matt Damon in Green Zone: Traffic Shot

Maybe I missed something, but this is the first I’ve heard of Green Zone. Matt Damon has teamed up again with Bourne Supremacy and Ultimatum director Paul Greengrass in an action packed war thriller, about “a rogue U.S. Army officer who must hunt through covert and faulty intelligence hidden on foreign soil before war escalates in an unstable region.” The film has a strong supporting cast including Greg Kinnear, Brendan Gleeson, Amy Ryan, Khalid Abdalla and Jason Isaacs.

You would have thought that we would have heard more about this by now. Oh well! It’s here now with a bang. Check out the first action packed trailer and some stills from the film below…

Anyone else feel like they just watched a trailer for another Bourne film with a new twist? Luckily Bourne is a great series and Matt Damon is once of the easiest men in the world to watch on screen so the film definitely has some potential.

It will be interesting to see if this is a straight out action film or a war film with some purpose behind it. This trailer makes it look action-flick, but there is an opportunity for some depth. Damon is one to support a political cause so it’s easy to see why he might get behind a war-thriller. Then again, he’s done a number of flat out shoot um up films, so it might just be that. Where will this one fall? It’s hard to tell just yet.

Check out Damon in some action shots below…

The film will be in theaters March 12, 2010.
