Monaghan Recruited By Fort Bliss

Monaghan Recruited By Fort Bliss

She was last seen being rescued by a war veteran in Source Code, but now Michelle Monaghan is getting into uniform herself, signing on to indie drama Fort Bliss.

Monaghan will be playing a trooper home from a long tour in Afghanistan who has difficulty adjusting back to home life. Which is especially difficult since she has a five-year-old son who barely knows his mother. So her most difficult mission is to reconnect with her own child... We’ve officially just written one of the title cards for the eventual trailer and we’d like our cash up front, please.

Writer/director Claudia Myers, who last pulled double duty on indie comedy Kettle Of Fish, is switching to something more dramatic for her latest film. She’ll kick off shooting in New Mexico next June.

Monaghan, meanwhile, will next be seen on our screens in Machine Gun Preacher opposite Gerard Butler. She’s also got revenge drama Boot Tracks gearing up, and starts shooting Better Living Through Chemistry in the next couple of months.
