“It’s too soon for a 9/11 film” was the rallying cry for the early part of 2006. That changed with Paul Greengrass’s United 93 which managed to provide a fitting tribute to the people who lost their lives on that tragic day and remind audiences that heroes were around who made a difference and that the attacks were not only in New York and Washington D.C. Now he’s taking on another potentially controversial subject: the invasion of Iraq.

Variety reports that Greengrass will write and direct an adaptation of the book Imperial Life in the Emerald City: Inside Iraq’s Green Zone. The book, by the Baghdad “Washington Post” bureau chief Rajiv Chandrasekaran, deals with the United States governments attempts to set up a provisional government within Iraq.

Greengrass will reunite with his team from United 93 which includes Universal Studios, and producers Lloyd Levin, Tim Bevan, and Eric Fellner. The director will tackle Imperial Life after he finishes The Bourne Ultimatum, which is currently in post-production.
