Sep 25 Matt Damon Heads to Manchester by the Sea 0
Filed in: Movie News

The last time Matt Damon and director Kenneth Lonergan worked together, the result was the well-regarded Margaret, which got stuck in release limbo for years as producers and financiers argued over its future only to finally arrive to critical acclaim. They’ll be hoping for an easier time of it on their next collaboration, Manchester-By-The-Sea.

Lonergan is working from a script he wrote that finds Damon as a plumber living in Boston who returns home to the titular town when he learns his brother has died. He’s landed with the responsibility of caring for his 16 year-old nephew, but a dark family tragedy from the past comes back to haunt him.

With Ender’s Game backers OddLot Entertainment providing the cash to make the film, Lonergan has worked quickly on this one, ramping up pre-production ready to kick off shooting in a month or so. Damon will fit the role into his schedule before he heads off to work on Ridley Scott’s sci-fi drama thriller The Martian, which itself is now recruiting the rest of its cast. Last on screen in The Monuments Men, Damon will next show up as part of Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar, which lands on November 7.

Apr 30 Matt Damon on whether he’ll play Aquaman 0
Filed in: Movie News

Hollywood has been buzzing lately about rumors actor Matt Damon could star as Aquaman in Warner Bros.’ upcoming superhero action flick “The Justice League.”

But Damon—who won a Golden Globe for best screenplay for “Good Will Hunting,” which he co-wrote with friend and actor Ben Affleck—just laughed the idea off during a CNBC interview on Tuesday.

“Since they made Ben Batman, I’ve been showing up at his house every day dressed as Robin, but my little campaign I don’t think has gone too well so far,” joked Damon on “Closing Bell.”

Playing an amphibious superhero might not be a stretch for Damon, if only to promote, a non-profit he co-founded to provide safe drinking water and sanitation to developing countries around the world.

“If dressing up in yellow tights somehow moved the needle on this issue, I would be willing to do that,” he said. “I’ve done sillier stuff.”

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. 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.

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.

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.

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.
