Matt's drama with Tom McCarthy now has a confirmed release date and title of Stillwater. From Deadline:
The pic, from Participant and DreamWorks, centers on an American oil-rig roughneck (Damon) from Oklahoma who travels to Marseille to visit his estranged daughter (Abigail Breslin), in prison for a murder she claims she did not commit. Confronted with language barriers, cultural differences and a complicated legal system, he builds a new life for himself in France as he makes it his personal mission to exonerate her. Camille Cottin also stars.
Matt has arrived in Australia with his family to film a role in the new Marvel film Thor: Love and Thunder. Matt will be in Sydney for several months, according to a press release quoted at the Daily Mail.
Hollywood superstar Matt Damon and his family touched down in Australia on Saturday and began 14 days of privately-arranged quarantine in New South Wales.
And the actor says he is thrilled to be spending time Down Under as he joins the cast of Thor: Love and Thunder.
'I'm so excited that my family and I will be able to call Australia home for the next few months,' Damon, 50, said this week.
With the threat of COVID-19 as a paramount consideration, the Damon family entered Australia under the direction of the NSW Government’s COVID-19 Quarantine Program over the weekend.
Prime Minister Scott Morrison welcomed the announcement of Matt Damon this week.
'Hollywood superstar Matt Damon joining our homegrown talent to film such a major movie in NSW is a big win creating thousands of jobs for locals. Australia’s management of COVID-19 and our Government’s tax incentives have ensured that our film industry is booming with many new jobs for actors as well electricians, carpenters, cooks, security staff, bus drivers and a massive boost for NSW.'
Other stars known to be joining the fourth Thor film are Tessa Thompson (Valkyrie), Natalie Portman (Jane Foster), and Christian Bale (villain Gorr the God Butcher).
Matt will celebrate his 50th birthday this week in Ireland, where filming for The Last Duel has resumed. Photos from filming this week are at the local paper — the Meath Chronicle.
"The Last Duel" is expected to resume shooting in Ireland at the end of the month, according to Ireland's Sunday Times. Sir Ridley Scott may be directing the film 'virtually', as reported at Indiewire.
Ridley Scott, for example, is prepping to virtually direct the last few weeks of shooting in Ireland on ‘The Last Duel’ starring Ben Affleck and Matt Damon, which was interrupted March 13. He has edited one hour of the period adventure after four weeks filming in France, and was trying to finish in time for a December 25 release date.”
'The Last Duel' has been delayed until 15 October 2021 as part of a Disney release date shuffle due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Filming may resume late next month (as Jodie Comer suggested in a recent interview), but there has been no official announcement yet.
Matt and family are now back in Los Angeles after choosing to stay in Ireland for a few months after filming for The Last Duel was shut down in France.
