The film is set between 2014-2017 and will focus on a SWAT team from Mosul, as they work to rid the Iraqi city of ISIS militants.

The film is loosely based on a 2017 New Yorker article about the fight to defeat ISIS after it took control of Mosul, the capital of the Nineveh Province.

Award-winning producers Anthony Russo, 50 and Joe Russo, 49, are at the helm for this new production.

21-year-old officer Kawa (Adam Bessa) gets embroiled in a firefight and escapes by the skin of his teeth.


Once the chaos dies down, he comes into contact with the men who saved his life, the aforementioned team led by Jasem (Suhail Dabbach) and is so touched by their bravery that he joins the group.

The cast includes Ben Affan (Damascus Cover), Waleed Elgadi (Four Lions), Hayat Kamille (Death on the Nile) and Thaer Al-Shayei (Being Human).

The film will be directed by Matthew Michael Carnahan, who made his directional debut with Mosul. He has also written for films such as Dark Water, 21 Bridges, and World War Z.

Mosul made its premiere at Venice Film Festival and Toronto Film Festival back in September 2019.
