  • Willem Dafoe has joined Great Wall, which is set to film in China in April.

    Willem Dafoe has signed to join Matt Damon in The Great Wall, Legendary’s fantastical retelling of the origin of China’s wondrous barrier.

    Zhang Yimou is directing the feature that is a pet project of Legendary CEO Thomas Tull, who conceived it with World War Z writer Max Brooks.

    It is eyeing an April start in China.

    Damon, who is in final negotiations, will star as a soldier who is part of a group of mercenaries traveling to China in order to bring back gunpowder to Europe. When the group is attacked by mystical beasts, the man finds himself in a war between a secret warrior clan and the beasts.

    Here is something I am very proud of. For the last two years I have written and produced live Come to Papa shows in New York and LA. With help of amazing musicians, actors and comedians the shows have really taken off at the Village Underground and Largo at the Coronet. And now I share them with you.
    Starting with three episodes featuring fancy people like Matt Damon, Sarah Silverman, Jim Norton, Joel McHale, Andy Richter, Maria Bamford and on and on!
    Special thanks to all who have come out. There will be a lot more.
    And in the meantime check this out, add it to your favorites and share with your pals. http://cometopapalive.com Enjoy!

    The local media seems to have it wrong and occasionally think he's there solely for the archery training and not the film. A few sightings of Matt out in Budapest recently - he should finish up there soon.
