Bourne in 2016, PGL winner announced
  • Matt (and Ben) confirmed that a new Bourne movie will be released in 2016 - from E Online.

    In between talking about their HBO series and their impressive muscles, Affleck (accidently?) revealed a big casting announcement.

    "Well, [Damon's] going to be doing a Bourne movie next fall when I've just completely lost any semblance of physical fitness. So….," Affleck told E! News exclusively.Did Affleck just say what we think he said? Oh yes, he did!

    "Yes, next year," Damon responded to E! News when asked for clarification. "It'll be in 2016 when the movie will actually come out. [Director] Paul Greengrass is going to do another one and that's all I ever said. I just needed him to say yes."

  • Matt and Ben announced that Jason Mann was the winner of Project Greenlight season 4 on Friday. Interviews and photos are at Access Hollywood, Variety, PopSugar and People.

  • Details and a few reviews of Matt's extended cameo in Interstellar.

  • Director Alexander Payne wrote to a newspaper to state that Downsizing is now yet confirmed or financed:

    Alexander Payne is calling reports that he will direct a sci-fi comedy starring Matt Damon “premature.”

    “There are no deals, no proverbial ‘green light,’ nothing in stone,” Payne told The World-Herald in an email. “I’ve observed too many an expectant couple announce the pregnancy and then miscarry.”

    Interstellar

    I'd like to request that all of us to refrain from INTERSTELLAR spoiler discussion. I'm doing my best not to read any reviews or dig too deep. My only fear is that I come on here and someone bluntly talks about Matt's appearance. I haven't seen the film yet and would really like to be surprised.
    I'm sure you'll all agree :)

    Thanks!
    Gregory
    P.S. I am excited for INTERSTELLAR and THE MARTIAN and BOURNE!!!

    Re: Interstellar

    I understand Gregory, as I won't have time to see it until tomorrow and I'm also trying to be careful about what I see. But it's hard! Even some legit news sites are full of spoilers. And once we see it we probably would like to discuss it with other Damonites! Felicity, does this site have spoiler tags or is there any way we could set up a separate thread for Interstellar discussions?

    I also am very excited about Matt's upcoming projects. Greengrass! Bourne! Woooohoooo!

    Interstellar

    I think you will like it, i went to see it yesterday and the film all round is brilliant, one cheesy bit at the end but well worth a cinema visit and ladies keep a tissue handy as there are a couple of tear jerkers, even my husband agreed, and I'll definateley be buying the blue ray, as for Matt, no spoilers from me but awesome as always.

    Re: Interstellar

    Since the new Bourne film with Matt has been revealed and it will be out in 2016, I wonder if will it be out in the summer of 2016 just like the other Bourne films was released in the summertime?

    Those photos!

    The pics of Matt and Ben are part adorable and part hilarious. Some really funny captions could be made for these. Has anybody heard the ancient song by the Carpenters, "Close to You"? Lol. Seeing them enjoying each other like that makes me smile.

    I am confused. How did someone already win when the show hasn't started. Or do they fisrt select someone and then start filming the the movie being made?

    Cindiest it was narrowed down to the top 20 by fan votes online back in September (with a #1 fan pick). Then it was narrowed down to the top 10 (by whom?) in Oct, and then on Friday the #1 person (by whom?) was announced. However, it was never made clear who picked the top 10 and eventually the top 1 (the #1 fan pick was not the winner).

    Thank you, G. I still don't understand how there's a winner when the show hasn't even aired. I'm slow on the uptake.

    ETA- I get it now!

    PGL

    There's a nice article out today at THR about the event announcing the winner. It includes interviews with all the main players. There is info on the details of the contest, but unfortunately I don't seem to be able to link to it. Perhaps someone else can.

    “I remember doing Saving Private Ryan, and Steven Spielberg showed me stuff that he shot when he was 12 years old [on a] Super-8 camera,” Damon said. “In 10 minutes now, my children take an iPhone and they sit there and they make those little iMovies, and they tell stories, and they understand how to cut shots together. The process has kind of been democratized.”
