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.
In addition to “Race to the South Pole,” moviemaking pair Damon and Affleck also have a film about Boston gangster Whitey Bulger in the works, which would star Damon and be directed by Affleck.
Ben Affleck is “tempted” to take on an acting role in the new movie he is making with best friend Matt Damon, but fears playing a corrupt federal agent will make him unpopular in his hometown.
The “Good Will Hunting” collaborators have signed up to work together on the new film, about Boston-based crime lord Whitey Bulger, with Affleck directing the project and Damon taking on the lead role. Affleck admits he would like to step in front of the camera too, to play corrupt FBI agent John Connolly, but he is worried the role will make him unpopular in his native Boston.
He tells the Boston Herald, “If there was a movie that me and Matt were meant to do together, this has gotta be the one. It’s where my heart is, but there’s a lot of stuff, and we’re trying to cull it and we’re probably twice as careful about this one because we know the degree of scrutiny that people are going to have — particularly in his native of Boston.
“Connolly’s such a great part, but he just makes me sick. With Whitey, at least you know he’s a gangster, he’s a criminal, he got people killed … it was no secret. But the FBI and Connolly in particular were the ones making sure he didn’t get arrested and allowing more people to get killed and exploited and abused. “I’m tempted to do Connolly. But I don’t know … I feel like I could never show my face again in Boston.”
The two childhood friends are living by one another again after Damon purchased a $15-million mansion in the Pacific Palisades district in Los Angeles right near his pal’s property.
Affleck is thrilled that Damon has made the move with his family – wife Luciana and daughters, Alexia, Isabella, six, Gia, four, and 23-month-old Stella – although he admits the pair’s expectations about parenthood have changed a lot over the years.
The 40-year-old actor – who has three children, daughters Violet, six, and Seraphina, three, and six-month-old son Samuel with his wife Jennifer Garner – told the Boston Herald newspaper: “We’re closer than we were in Central Square (in Cambridge, Massachusetts). We’ve got the kids back and forth in the yards. The weird thing is, when we imagined hanging out with our kids together, it would be like playing football and baseball. But it’s all these girls playing princess!”
Damon’s new home boasts six bedrooms, eight bathrooms, swimming pool and sprawling garden.
The two friends famously won the Best Original Screenplay Oscar and a Golden Globe Award for Best Screenplay for their 1997 movie ‘Good Will Hunting’. — Bang Showbiz
