Obviously if there is anymore news or official confirmation of this we’ll update and let you know all about it.
From The Improper:
A source confirms to The Improper that the movie won’t be shot in Iraq as originally reported. The film will likely do its location shooting in Morocco or Jordan.
A number of period desert films have been shot the North African country, including 2001′s “Black Hawk Down.” In the last few years, Michael Patrick King’s “Sex and the City 2,” Disney’s “Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time,” and “Inception” have been filmed there.
But Director Kathryn Bigelow chose to film her Oscar-winning Iraq war epic, “The Hurt Locker,” in Jordan. She wanted to be as close to Iraq as possible, while avoiding the war-torn country. “Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade” also filmed in Jordan in 1988.
