Hollywood to start catching up on cashing in

Everybody except you and me is making money off this war. I've been wondering when Hollywood would get in the act. Well, wonder no more. The Guardian reports that
Harrison Ford is to star in what will be Hollywood's first feature about the current Iraq war.

Based on a nonfiction work—No True Glory: The Battle for Fallujah by Bing West—you may take it as a given that this will not be the title of the movie.

It is probable that the film will strike a different tone to the only major feature about the US's previous war in Iraq, 1999's Three Kings, which told the story of a group of cynical, self-serving US soldiers. West's coverage of the war has tended to side with US troops.

You bet! The government needs enlistees badly. Time to get the Hollywood propaganda machine going.
