"At times like this I do feel like it's appropriate to be thankful for people that believed in the script, in particular Kathryn (Bigelow) and Nicolas Chartier, the financier who put up the money for the movie," he said.

At a time when Iraq pictures were radioactive they both believed in this story, and if they hadn't the thing would probably still be sitting in my desk drawer." - Producer Mark Boal
