Jun 19 John Krasinksi To Star In Matt Damon’s Directorial Debut 0
Filed in: General News , Movie News

A few years ago, it seemed like the only time Matt Damon would ever follow his friend Ben Affleck was in an alphabetical list. Both were Oscar-winning screenwriters turned popular leading men but Damon’s choices earned him a much more respectable reputation. However, Affleck has recently become a highly-sought after director and now Damon is hoping to follow his friend into the director’s chair.

It’s been discussed that Damon could direct the baseball wife-swap movie The Trade but he’s also attached to helm Father Daughter Time: A Tale of Armed Robbery and Eskimo Kisses. Now Damon has come out and said that he will direct his first movie early next year and that it’ll star John Krasinski, best known for his work on The Office. Is it Father Daughter Time or something else? Read after the break.

Vulture spoke with Damon at the American Institute for Stuttering 5th Annual Benefit Gala and asked him when he was going to start directing:

I am coming closer to a directorial thing, yes. I’ve got a few things that I really want to direct, and one I’m actually going to start at the first quarter of next year.

He then added, “John Krasinski’s in it.”

Both Vulture and The Playlist believe Damon is talking about Father Daughter Time because The Trade “is having some legal issues.” Father Daughter Time has a cool, but not unfamiliar premise, about “a man who goes on the lam with his daughter on a 3-state crime spree.” Think a smaller, more personal Bonnie and Clyde meets The Professional. But the whole father/daughter thing has shades of not only Hanna but also the upcoming Future Perfect and Blackbird. The questions then come up: how different is this, and is Damon going to be the father or will it be Krasinski?

Damon has worked with some of the best directors in the world (Martin Scorsese, Clint Eastwood, Cameron Crowe, the Coen Brothers, Steven Soderbergh, Gus Van Sant, Steven Spielberg, Francis Ford Coppola and more) so he’s basically gone through the best possible film school imaginable. Plus, if he has any questions, he can call Ben Affleck and ask for help.

The keen card player was spotted meeting Harvey Weinstein and Ocean’s 13 screenwriters Brian Koppelman and David Levien at New York restaurant Cipriani Downtown to begin work on the script to Rounders 2, the New York Post reports.

Edward Norton, who appeared in the first movie, will reportedly reprise his role in the sequel.

In Rounders Matt played a law student who was lured back into gambling by his old friend, an ex-convict, played by Ed.

The 1998 film flopped at the box office but became a cult hit on DVD.

Jun 19 Damon’s Weiner fundraiser axed 0
Filed in: General News

Matt Damon’s plans to host a fundraiser for U.S. politician Anthony Weiner have been axed in the aftermath of the congressman’s sex scandal.

The married New York representative hit headlines after he admitted lying about sending a saucy picture to a female student via Twitter and confessed to having intimate internet and phone chats with several other women.

The Good Will Hunting star was set to host an event for Weiner at Almond Restaurant in the Big Apple on June 20 with tickets being sold for up to $25,000 each.

However, the fundraiser has now been cancelled in the wake of the scandal engulfing the politician.

Damon tells New York Magazine, “Look, I really support his politics. Anybody who fights for the working class and the middle class, I’ll help in any way I can… (But) it’s going to be postponed now because of all this.”

Filed in: Personal News

Matt Damon’s father is currently battling multiple myeloma.

The actor revealed the news publicly on Wednesday when he and his father, Kent Damon, took part in a benefit for Massachusetts General Hospital.

According to WCVB in Boston, Matt said his 68-year-old father will “fight it to a standstill,” referring to his disease, which is incurable.

Multiple myeloma is an “accumulation of malfunctioning or ‘cancerous’ plasma cells,” according to EmedicineHealth.com.

According to People, Kent’s disease is in remission.

Matt and his father took part in the One Hundred Celebration at the Westin Hotel in Boston, where the actor thanked the medical staff for their help.

“My family is so grateful for the care you’ve given us,” Matt said at the event. “It’s deeply humbling to see how many people here are committing their lives to helping others.”

The actor added that he didn’t expect cancer to hit his family.

“We’ve lost some close personal friends to cancer in recent years, but I never thought it would happen to my dad, the marathon runner,” Matt reportedly said. “It sucked.”
