Jan 16 Ben Affleck and Matt Damon together again on big screen? 0
Filed in: Movie News

Ben Affleck and Matt Damon may soon reunite on the big screen — for Harvey Weinstein’s next project, “A Speck in the Sea.”

For a second there, you thought I was going to say Damon is playing Robin, didn’t you?

According to the New York Post’s Page Six, Weinstein is courting the former “Good Will Hunting” actors for his adaptation of a story written by Paul Tough for The New York Times Magazine. Deadline.com reported Friday The Weinstein Company obtained the rights to the story. The project will be produced by Rachael Horovitz, Jason Blum and Harvey Weinstein, with Bob Weinstein serving as executive producer.

The film will tell the true story of lobsterman John Aldridge, who in July 2013 fell overboard into the Atlantic Ocean and used his rubber boots to float for 12 hours before he was rescued.

Those must have been some boots.

The Huffington Post reported reps for Affleck and Damon haven’t got back to them to confirm the Page Six report.

Nov 18 Justin Lin to direct next “Bourne” 0
Filed in: Movie News

After leaving the “Fast & Furious 7″ project due to its fast-tracking schedule, Justin Lin is back in the director’s chair for Universal Pictures, but for the next instalment in the “Bourne” franchise. Justin will also produce the action film together with returning producers Frank Marshall, Jeffrey Weiner and Ben Smith.

The follow-up to “The Bourne Legacy” will continue the adventures of the genetically enhanced CIA agent Aaron Cross. Jeremy Renner will reprise his role as Cross, but it is uncertain if Matt Damon, who played Jason Bourne in the previous “Bourne” films, will join him this time as Matt has voiced his interest in returning. Additionally, the film is the fifth “Bourne” film in the franchise.

“The Bourne Legacy” was released in 2012 but reception to the film has been mixed. The film grossed a total of USD 276,144,750 worldwide.

Mar 6 This week’s cover: Matt Damon and Michael Douglas go ‘Behind the Candelabra’ in HBO’s Liberace biopic 0
Filed in: Movie News

Yes, that really is Michael Douglas and Matt Damon under the prosthetic makeup, wigs, and crystal-trimmed suits — all part of their costumes for Behind the Candelabra, the new Steven Soderbergh-directed HBO movie (airing May 26) about the stranger-than-fiction romance between Liberace (Douglas) and his young lover, Scott Thorson (Damon) from 1978 to 1982. In this week’s issue, Damon and Douglas give a frank, funny interview about filming one of the weirdest, glitziest gay love stories ever put on film, one that required both actors to do things they’d never done before onscreen. Like, say, wearing a metallic thong — and nothing else. “Every Sunday night, this girl would come to my house and I would stand in my garage and I would hike my boxer briefs up into the crack of my a– and she would give me a spray tan,” explains Damon, who spends plenty of the movie in tiny swimsuits, and wasn’t too excited about his real-life wife seeing his bronzed backside. “We’ve been through three childbirths, we’ve been in the trenches, there are no secrets. But I really wish she didn’t see that. That’s too much.”
Behind the Candelabra is based on Thorson’s 1988 memoir about Liberace’s over-the-top world of palatial houses, extravagant clothes, and secret affairs. (Liberace never publicly came out as gay before dying of AIDS in 1987.) It’s a world that Douglas actually witnessed first-hand, since his father, actor Kirk Douglas, was once Liberace’s neighbor in Palm Springs. “I remember meeting him just in passing, in his convertible with the top down — his hair not moving,” says the actor, who also got advice from one of Liberace’s close friends, Debbie Reynolds, who plays his mother in the film. “She just told me, ‘[Your voice] can never be too nasal.’” The movie is also Douglas’ first role since his cancer diagnosis in 2010, and the actor tells EW that beating the disease and returning to acting has been therapeutic for him. “It was great to get back,” he says. “It gave me a new appreciation for what I do, taking advantage of it.”

As for their sex scenes together (and trust us, the movie has plenty), Damon and Douglas both say that shooting a moment of passion is always awkward, no matter who’s involved. “The scene where I’m behind him and going at him, we did that in one take,” recalls Damon, laughing. “We do it. Cut. There’s a long pause. And then you just hear Steven go, “Well… I have no notes.”

For more from Matt Damon and Michael Douglas on Behind the Candelabra, plus exclusive photos of the movie’s costumes, sets, and supporting cast — you won’t believe what Rob Lowe looks like! — pick up a copy of this week’s Entertainment Weekly, on stands Friday, March 8.

Jan 2 Matt Damon still upset about turning down ‘Avatar’ 0
Filed in: General News , Movie News

Matt Damon still curses his poor fortune after he had to turn down a leading role in the most successful film of all time, “Avatar.” The movie star was James Cameron’s first choice to play Jake Sully in the 2009 blockbuster, but he had to walk away from the role because he had other commitments.

Damon tells Playboy, “I particularly wanted to work with James Cameron, and still do. … He knew he was the star of that movie and that everyone was going to see it anyway. When he said, ‘Look, I’m offering it to you, but if you say no, the movie doesn’t need you,’ I remember thinking, ‘Oh God, not only do I have to say no because of scheduling, but he’s going to make a star out of some guy who’s going to start taking jobs from me later.’” Australian actor Sam Worthington landed the role of Sully.

The “Bourne Ultimatum” star says he also regrets having to turn down Josh Brolin’s role in “Milk.” ”I would have had the chance to do scenes with Sean Penn,” he said.

And the actor reveals he was also in the early running to land a leading role in “Brokeback Mountain,” opposite Joaquin Phoenix. He explains, “I had just done ‘The Talented Mr. Ripley’ and ‘All the Pretty Horses.’ I said … ‘I just did a gay movie and a cowboy movie. I can’t do a gay cowboy movie now.’

“The right actor got the part. Heath Ledger was magnificent.” And the role Phoenix was considered for went to Jake Gyllenhaal.

Jan 2 Damon took same-sex kissing tips from Ledger 0
Filed in: Movie News

Los Angeles, Dec 29 (IANS) Actor Matt Damon took tips from actor Heath Ledger on how to kiss a man as the latter had played the role of a gay cowboy in 2005 movie “Brokeback Mountain”.

Damon,42, was suppose to kiss Michael Douglas in film adaptation of book “Behind The Candelabra: My Life With Liberace”, which is based on life of famous painist and vocalist Liberace.

“I remember asking Heath Ledger after ‘Brokeback Mountain’, ‘How’d you do that scene with Jake?’ – meaning the scene where they start ferociously kissing. He said, ‘Well, mate, I drank a half case of beer in my trailer’,” Playboy magazine quoted Damon as saying.

“I started laughing and he goes, ‘No, I’m serious. I needed to just go for it. If you can’t do that, you’re not making the movie’,” he added.

Dec 5 Matt Damon joins George Clooney and Bill Murray in ‘Monuments Men’ 0
Filed in: Movie News

The “Bourne” star is in talks to join the cast of “Monuments Men,” a WWII drama based on Robert M. Edsel’s book of the same name that was adapted by Clooney as a starring and directing vehicle, according to Deadline. The plot centers on the efforts of a group of Allied art historians and museum personnel who are tasked with salvaging works of art and other items of cultural importance from the Nazis in Europe during the latter days of WWII.

Damon, who previously starred with Clooney in the “Ocean’s” trilogy as well as the Iraq War drama “Syriana,” is just the latest big name to board the project, which already boasts the likes of Daniel Craig, Bill Murray, Cate Blanchett, Jean Dujardin (“The Artist”) and John Goodman.

“Monuments Men” is scheduled to begin shooting in Europe this January.

Damon will next be seen in “Promised Land,” the upcoming Gus Van Sant drama that was co-written by Damon and co-star John Krasinski. That film is slated for an Oscar-qualifying run beginning December 28, before moving into wider release after the first of the year.

Oct 14 MATT DAMON: ‘I WON’T RETURN AS JASON BOURNE’ 0
Filed in: General News , Movie News

Matt Damon has shot down suggestions he will be returning to the Bourne film franchise, insisting writers would have to come up with an unbelievable plot to reintroduce his character Jason Bourne.

Damon stepped aside after starring in three movies when studio executives and director Paul Greengrass fell out over the proposed story line for a fourth film, and Jeremy Renner and director Tony Gilroy replaced the pair in summer hit The Bourne Legacy.

Renner has often hinted at the possibility of teaming his character, Aaron Cross, up with Damon’s Bourne in a future film, but the original franchise star insists the plot of Legacy has ended his involvement in the films for good.

Despite previously stating he would be interested in another Bourne film as long as Greengrass is onboard to direct, Damon now tells Movieline.com, “Because they (writers and Tony Gilroy) use our actors and characters… whatever they said (in Legacy) is true and so we’d have to acknowledge it in any Bourne movie that we’d do.

“That makes it really tough. I don’t think we can do the Dallas (TV drama) it-was-all-a-dream scenario. I don’t think the audience would go for that after they paid money to see a movie.”

Patrick Duffy’s Dallas character, Bobby Ewing, was re-introduced to viewers in 1986 – after leaving the show the previous year – when he stepped out of the shower. His character’s wife, played by Victoria Principal, realised Ewing’s death and everything that had come after it during the previous season had been a dream.

Filed in: Movie News

One of our favorite filmmaking teams has a new project in the works, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

Matt Damon and Ben Affleck will reportedly produce a new movie called “Race to the South Pole,” which has Affleck’s brother Casey attached to star.

The film centers on the true life efforts of Robert Falcon Scott and Roald Amundsen to reach the South Pole in the early 1900s. With Scott hailing from England and Amundsen from Norway, the two explorers were, as the title suggests, in a race to see who would reach the mysterious terrain first.

According to THR, Casey’s attached to portray Scott, and Peter Glanz is on board to write the script.
