Aug 30 Damon Warns Against Celebrity Dating 0
Filed in: Uncategorized

Hollywood actor Matt Damon is so blissfully happy with his waitress girlfriend Luciana Barroso, he is urging fellow stars to start dating non-celebrities.

The Bourne Supremacy star was horrified to see his best pal Ben Affleck hounded by press over his failed romance with Jennifer Lopez, and he insists lower profile relationships cut down on media hassle.

He says, “After watching what my poor friend Ben went through, I’ve seen that you can’t let your life go to hell that way.”

“So for me, I’ve made things a lot easier for myself by not having a relationship with another celebrity.”

“I’ve gone out with actresses and over the years I just realized I had a choice to make.”

“It’s worked out really well that way and I couldn’t be happier.”

Aug 26 ‘Grimm’ spin puts new face on Matt Damon 0
Filed in: Uncategorized

He and Heath Ledger portray the folk-fairy tale scholars in Terry Gilliams’s fanciful film.

HOLLYWOOD—Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm (aka. the Brothers Grimm) were 19th century German scholars who spent years compiling folk tales from around their country. Their published collection includes some of the most beloved fairy tales including “Cinderella,” “Hansel and Gretel” and “Little Red Riding Hood.” The Grimms also began what became a 16-volume historical German dictionary, “Deutches Worterbook.”

“They were really influential guys—they unearthed all of these stories and collected them and wrote them down and suddenly everyone got very proud of their heritage; and then there’s our movie,” says Matt Damon, who portrays Will (short for Wilhelm) in Terry Gilliam’s fanciful “The Brothers Grimm.” The fantasy adventure is loosely based on the brothers’ exploits.

“They’re probably spinning in their graves,” adds the Oscar-winning co-writer of “Good Will Hunting.”

Damon, 34, co-stars with “A Knight’s Tale’s” Heath Ledger (Jake, short for Jacob) as a pair of con men traveling the German countryside duping unsuspecting yokels into paying them to rid their towns of accursed monsters and demons. When the French occupiers figure out the brothers’ scheme, the duo is forced into a real enchanted forest to solve the mysterious disappearance of several local maidens or face execution. There they must match wits against a youth-obsessed witch (Monica Bellucci).

Damon says he signed on to the $80 million project for one reason and one reason only: to work with the renowned director of “12 Monkeys,” “The Fisher King” and “Brazil.”

“I would have played any role in this movie just to work with him,” Damon says. “He’s got the greatest energy, and it’s totally infectious.”

Speaking with an English accent (as he does in the movie) was a bit tricky for the native Bostonian, who admits, “It was in and out for me.” But “Grimm” also afforded the actor an opportunity to play against type. Damon’s Will is the pragmatic ladies’ man while 26-year-old Ledger (also in an unusual bit of casting) plays the bookish, socially awkward dreamer.

“I just thought it would be great for Matt to be Ben Affleck for a role,” jokes Gilliam, referring to Damon’s longtime friend.

“It was a lot more fun to work that way,” Damon says of playing the suave sophisticate for a change.

Ledger reveals that he and Damon bonded like brothers while shooting the film on location in the Czech Republic capital of Prague in 2003.

“To a certain degree we had to for the film, but I think it just happened anyway,” the native Australian says. “We’d go to dinner and hang out,” adds Damon. “Plus, we’re both just total geeks about movies.”

Isolated from their families and friends for months, Damon and Ledger would sometimes take the crew bowling on weekends.

Asked who was the kingpin, Ledger points to Damon. Damon shakes his head and laughs.

“It depended on how much beer we’d had,” he says.

Aug 25 Damon Wants To Be Bourne Again 0
Filed in: Uncategorized

LOS ANGELES (Zap2it.com)- Universal Pictures views Matt Damon’s Jason Bourne franchise as currency. The 2002 “Bourne Identity” made more than $120 million at the domestic box office and the 2004 sequel “The Bourne Supremacy” did more than $175 million. If the studio had its way, there would be a different movie about the spy with amnesia every summer.
Interestingly, Damon also views the blockbuster movies as currency. The Oscar-winning screenwriter knows that every time he does an “Identity,” he can do a “Gerry” and that every time he does a “Supremacy,” he gets the extra power to do something like his latest, the Terry Gilliam fairy tale film “The Brothers Grimm.” The “Bourne” films have done for him what ambitious duds like “The Legend of Bagger Vance” and “All the Pretty Horses” couldn’t. Does that mean that Damon sees another sequel on the horizon somewhere?

“Yeah, off in the middle distance somewhere,” he says. “I keep doing movies like with Terry Gilliam, I just wrapped one with Scorsese [”The Departed”], I’m going to do this run of movies and then, if I flame out in all of them, I’ll do another Bourne movie [and] buy myself a few more years.”

Damon’s upcoming slate isn’t exactly loaded with obscure indies like the walking-and-dying-in-the-desert drama “Gerry.” He’d got “The Departed” with Leonardo DiCaprio, this winter’s “Syriana” with George Clooney,” the Robert DeNiro-directed “The Good Shepherd” with Angelina Jolie and he’s rumored to be attached to “Margaret” from Kenneth Lonergan. None of those films, though, is the sure thing that “The Bourne Ultimatum” will be, whenever it gets made.

Although screenwriter Tony Gilroy is the only confirmed participant for “Ultimatum,” Damon insists that Paul Greengrass, who earned rave reviews for his work on “Supremacy,” is interested in a return.

“There’s no reason the third one shouldn’t be the best of all of them,” he says optimistically. “That would be the only way to kind of come back and do it, is not just to milk the cash cow, but to make it a proper kind of trilogy and finish it on a great note so that people look back and say, ‘You know what, that was a f***ing kick-ass three-movie trilogy there.’ It’s not something I would want to do forever, you know.”

He continues in an Old Man voice, “I’m Jason Bourne! Get off my land.”

Damon has never seemed particularly interested in maintaining the image of a prototypical studio leading man and even with a signature franchise to his credit, it doesn’t sound like he’s ready to start being safe.

“It’s gonna go away anyway, so you kind of take your shots and make stuff that you can be proud of, that you can kind of look back and say, ‘Yeah, that was an amazing experience, I learned a lot, I took a big swing, you know?’” He explains. “I think that’s kind of the healthiest way. I think when you see people… that look at their careers like, they get some success and then they protect it like a beachhead. They just sit there, ‘Don’t take this away from me!’ And they make really safe, boring choices. And eventually it goes away anyway. Scared money never wins.”

Aug 25 Damon uses big movies for his benefit 0
Filed in: Uncategorized

Either he’s trying to justify himself to the indie crowd or he just knows how to manage his money, but Matt Damon claims one of the benefits of appearing as Jason Bourne in both The Bourne Identity and The Bourne Supremacy is that the films provided him with the extra scratch he needed to do smaller (and I would add “better”) projects like Gerry or The Brothers Grimm.

It’s like the old saying goes, if you want to appear in a low budget movie, you have to do a few blockbusters where guys punch each other a lot. I assume this means we can expect Matt to appear in more independent films after the release of The Bourne Ultimatum in 2007.

Filed in: Uncategorized

Fox Searchlight and Camelot Pictures are co-financing “Margaret,” a Kenneth Lonergan-directed drama that begins filming next month in New York. Anna Paquin, Matt Damon, Mark Ruffalo, J. Smith-Cameron and Jeannie Berlin are all currently firming up deals to star according to Variety.

The drama revolves around a teen, her actress mother and the girl who tries to make amends for her complicity in a terrible traffic accident. Lonergan wrote the script for “Margaret” and has worked for two years with the producers to pull it together.

Scott Rudin and Sydney Pollack will produce, Anthony Minghella and Dan Halsted will executive produce and Fox Searchlight will distribute. Its not sure how the filming will fit into Paquin & Damon’s schedules with them currently filming “X3″ and “The Good Shepherd” respectively.
