Harrison Ford And Falluja

Reuters reported:

Producers at Universal Pictures are developing what would be Hollywood's first feature film about the war in Iraq, with actor Harrison Ford ready to portray a U.S. general in the movie, the studio said on Friday.

The combat drama would be based on the upcoming book "No True Glory," an account of the battle for Falluja by Bing West, a Marine veteran and former U.S. assistant defense secretary now covering the war as a foreign correspondent, a studio spokesman said.

I have no problem with Hollywood making movies about Iraq. However, I really wish they wouldn't portray Iraqis as Bedouins living in tents, raising goats and riding camels to work, which is the way Hollywood views Middle Easterners in most movies.
