Matt Damon confirmed for Cameron Crowe’s We Bought a Zoo

In June we posted a story that Matt Damon might join the cast of Cameron Crowe’s drama WE BOUGHT A ZOO and today we have confirmation that he will indeed play the lead in the film. The plot follows a struggling husband whose wife has cancer and they buy an estate that ends up being a zoo for exotic animals which they try to reopen to the public. WE BOUGHT A ZOO will also star Scarlett Johansson and Elle Fanning and is set to open December 23, 2011.

Anything Cameron Crowe touches is usually good and when you add an actor like Matt Damon it just ups the ante exponentially. This is on the (ever growing) list of movies to see next year. 2011 is shaping up to be a pretty good year for films (if they turn out to be any good) so start making your list to make sure you don’t miss anything!

Watch Michael Douglas, Natalie Portman, Matt Damon and 11 Other Stars Act

Acting! The New York Times has assembled 14 actors to perform a variety of classic screen types in short films directed by photographer Solve Sundsbo. Javier Bardem, Michael Douglas, James Franco, Tilda Swinton and Natalie Portman provide highlights, but pay special attention to Matt Damon’s hilarious silent screaming fit and Jennifer Lawrence’s sexy horror homage. Once again, The Winter’s Bone actress shows just what she had hidden underneath that bulky winter wardrobe. Also of note: singer Owen Pallet did the accompanying music, which sounds an awful lot like Johnny Greenwood’s score from There Will Be Blood. Not that anyone is complaining. [NYT]

Matt Damon Just as Annoyed Over Bourne Legacy As You Are

“I found out they’re making another when somebody saw it on the Internet,” the erstwhile franchise poster boy has confessed. “Nobody bothered to call me. I’m not in it, but even so, they’ll work Bourne into the title I guess. Universal just wants to call everything the Bourne something. So I guess they are trying to make another franchise and as they say, ‘It isn’t over until it’s over.’” Add Bourne Under a Bad Sign to the list of alternate titles, I suppose. [Parade via Vulture]
