Michael Welch cast as Pits, in the indie “The Boys of Abu Ghraib,” which Luke Moran is directing and producing. Story follows a U.S. soldier at the infamous Iraq prison who befriends a detainee accused of murder. This is a unique and important story that Welch and the cast are extremely passionate about. Based on the true events that occurred at Abu Ghraib in 2003, the film is about a group of young soldiers thrown into a hellish environment, with little but each other to help them cope with the challenges they face. (…) “This film demonstrates how a deplorable environment can drive a person with good intentions to the breaking point. The story is told from the soldier’s point of view, focusing on the psychological, rather than the political aspects of war.”
