Director Paul Greengrass started his career shooting documentaries in war zones.
The downtown Baghdad scenes were shot in Morocco.
Many of the soldiers in Matt Damon's WMD unit were actual Iraq War and Afghanistan War veterans, not actors. Damon said his biggest challenge was being aware that he was an actor who was giving orders to actual soldiers.
The character Roy Miller is based on U.S. Army Chief Warrant Officer Richard "Monty" Gonzales who had the real-life job of hunting for weapons of mass destruction after the fall of Baghdad. Gonzales was hired as a consultant on the film.
