Mosul, the military action movie produced by Joe and Anthony Russo, has found a home at Netflix, where it will release this November, according to a report from THR.
Written and directed by Matthew Michael Carnahan, who co-wrote World War Z and 21 Bridges (also Russo-produced), the movie retells the real-world events as first described in The New Yorker’s “The Desperate Battle to Destroy Isis.” The story centers around a group of Iraqi police on the Nineveh SWAT team as they defend their Northern Iraq town.
Mosul first premiered at Venice Film Festival in 2019, and then at the Toronto International Film Festival after that. The film was initially set for distribution in 2019 via 101 Studio, but plans fell through according to THR.
Mosul stars Suhail Dabbach (The Hurt Locker), Adam Bessa (Extraction), and Is’Haq Elias. The Russo Bros. produced the film alongside Mike Larocca and The New Yorker Studios. Todd Makurath, Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely are executive producing along with Mohamed Al-Daradji, Patrick Newall, Wang Zhongjun, Wang Zhonglei, and Hu Junyi.
Mosul is the second Russo-produced military action film to hit Netflix after this spring’s Extraction, which starred Chris Hemsworth. Following the completion of Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame, two huge, interconnected films, the Russos seem to have shifted away from blockbusters toward producing smaller and more self-contained stories.
