The Martian to shoot later this year - Matt Damon News Column
The Martian to shoot later this year
  • Producer Simon Kinberg claims The Martian will be Ridley Scott's next film and that it will shoot in the fall. Further details are not known at this stage. From The Playlist. Simon talks about the project briefly as a 'very realistic science fiction book' at 1.53.33 of the podcast linked at The Playlist.

  • Matt and Ben may be discussing the new season of Project Greenlight on Access Hollywood this Thursday. Thanks Cindi.

  • Part of an article in In Touch magazine, probably conducted on the red carpet at the recent Boston MGH charity event, from Contact Music:

    Asked how he juggles his career and family, the 43-year-old actor said: "I think making sure to carve out time for the family to be together on vacation is a good thing. We've done a lot of great vacations that I wouldn't mind going on again."
    Matt has been happily married to Argentina-born Luciana for 10 years and thinks communication is the secret to their happy loving relationship.

    He said: "I think our key is to talk a lot. But I wouldn't dare speak for anyone else."

    He added to In Touch magazine: "She just gets better with age."

  • A photo of Matt leaving the gym on Monday from the NY Post and photos of Matt at lunch with friends including Marc Joubert is at Zimbio.

  • The promotional video for Project Greenlight is now online. More details are available at ProjectGreenlight.com.

    Matt has been spending a lot of time at the gym recently so Kinberg is probably right. I'm excited for him to get back to work but I'd prefer a small-scale drama. I can't help but think Scott's best work is behind him.

    The Martian

    I would rather a small scale indie drama too, and I have little confidence in Scott, but at least the book is great, if inevitably predictable. Although very expensive and risky if they don't get the tone right.

    Ridley Scott

    Even if I wasn't excited for The Martian ( and we all know I am, I LOVE sci-fi:-) I would be relieved just to have something else on Matt's schedule.

    Re: Ridley Scott

    And when we do finally have something, it may clash with Project Greenlight.

    Old photo

    Shane Warne posted an old pic with Matt in Vegas (not sure how much Matt would know about cricket, despite what Shane writes):

    I hadn't connected that Marc Joubert (old friend of Matt's, in the lunch pics of last week) is a new producer of Project Greenlight, along with his new company (Adaptive Studios).

    Media management

    An off topic article (though it has a Matt reference) about the media management of celebs and how it may have changed in recent years. I still think you would have longer-form interviews without publicists hovering, but there may be less of them.

    From: cindiest Date: July 1st, 2014 05:52 am (UTC) (Link)

    Re: Media management

    The odd thing about the article is that it is at once "complaining" that the interviews will not be authentic, whilst arguing that what an artist says should be considered irrelevant by the admirer of the work.

    Re: Media management

    Most interviews are a performance and they are inherently inauthentic, such as Matt's Mr Smiley persona. But the audience should be savvy enough to know that it's an act.

    In Touch

    Here's a partial scan of the In Touch interview. Still don't know how much was new, or if it's just an extension of quotes from the flying/Casamigos event a few months ago (same 'interviewer').

    Lol, Matt is a billboard for Boston. Probably wearing Celtics sneakers.

    Another pic. Sites must like the change of hoodie (and the smile) so the photo's in a few places.

    "America: Imagine the World without Her"

    So a friend of mine alerted me that Matt Damon appears in the new Dinesh D’Souza documentary, "America: Imagine the World without Her", in theaters stateside. I went to see it tonight. D'Souza is the filmmaker who made "2016: Obama's America". D'Souza is a political commentator, filmmaker, and author.

    Anyway... in the beginning of the doc, he shows the scene from GWH when Matt tells Robin's character to read Howard Zinn's "A People's History of the United States", and then proceeds to breakdown and criticize Zinn's book and historical interpretation. Around the 1/2 way point in the doc, D'Souza shows footage of Matt & Lucy on the red carpet at the 2013 SAG-AFTRA awards, and then footage from Bourne Identity, and Bourne Supremacy while calling Damon a "disciple" of Zinn's and yet points out that it's capitalism that allows Damon to make the money (income) that he does and willing audiences who go to see Damon in the films, and that capitalism is not bad. The doc goes on pointing out that the United States is a good country that has done some bad things, but then goes on to rail against President Clinton and brings up Hillary clinton and their supposed Socialist philosophies.

    Re: "America: Imagine the World without Her"

    Thanks Gregory. I had seen reviews which discussed a long rant against Matt and Zinn but the reports provided no more details.

    I presume it's almost school holiday time in the US. Any guesses on Matt and family's vacation this year? Last year was Costa Rica.

    A new Tumblr devoted to Matt and Ben with some good old quotes and photos:
