There is great hope among the creators including director Matthew Michael Carnahan that the key cast members will be able to springboard from the project into work that’s a bit less intense in the future. Given how overwhelmingly positive most of the reviews have been, that’s certainly possible or even likely. Regardless, all involved should be happy to know they made a great movie that touched a lot of people. They shot using Iraqi dialogue, which wasn’t the easy way. They went to Morocco to make the film more authentic, which wasn’t the easy way, and when they started receiving death threats, they stood behind the film, which wasn’t the easy way.
