Vertical Entertainment has released the first official poster for the war drama, “Boys of Abu Ghraib,” which releases to theaters on March 28.

The film stars Sean Astin (“Rudy,” “The Lord of the Rings” trilogy); Sara Paxton (“The Innkeepers”); John Heard (“Runner Runner,” “Sharknado”); Scott Patterson (“Saw IV,” “Saw V”); Omid Abtahi (“Argo”); and Luke Moran, who also serves as writer and director for the project.

Oscar winner Edward Zwick (“Shakespeare in Love”) and Oscar nominee Marshall Herskovitz (“Traffic,” “The Last Samurai,” “Blood Diamond”) serve as the film’s producers.

Here is the synopsis, courtesy of Vertical Entertainment:

“From the Producers of ‘Blood Diamond’ and ‘The Last Samurai,’ this dramatic war thriller follows soldier Jack Farmer (Luke Moran) from small town America to Iraq’s most infamous prison, Abu Ghraib, where he’s tasked with guarding the Army’s highest priority detainees. Pressured by his superior (Sean Astin) into using harsh techniques on a seemingly innocent detainee (Omid Abtahi), the seductive allure of war quickly turns to a haunting reality that threatens to break him. Based on the true events that shocked the world in 2004.”
