  • An update on Ocean's Thirteen filming from the Review Journal:

    George Clooney, Brad Pitt and Matt Damon shot scenes for "Ocean's Thirteen" at McCarran International Airport and the Sundance heliport on Monday. Judging from the flurry of activity at The Venetian's Palazzo construction site, the shoot is moving there today.

  • A blog at indiewire randomly mentioned that a film version of Richard Yates' novel Revolutionary Road was "good to go until Sam Mendes dropped out because Matt Damon couldn't commit".

    I hadn't heard of the project before, or Matt potentially being attached, but it had some great elements. The movie seemed to be set up for Mendes to direct his wife Kate Winslet in their first project together, according to this posting at Discover Kate.com. Reviews of the book are available at Amazon.


  • The Wall Street Journal article about the proposed Star Trek film is now available online (for the moment) at this link. Thanks to the author Andrew LaVallee.

  • Update: Many thanks to Julie for uploading a clip from VH1's Celebrity Wedding Secrets at the following YouTube location: here.

  • Update: The first on-set photos with Matt from the set of Ocean's Thirteen in Las Vegas are at Sky Showbiz, including the following. More pics have also been posted at Just Jared.

    Can anyone help?

    I'm trying to remember the name of a movie Matt did several years ago. It was long before before Good Will Hunting.

    It's a Western starring Tommy Lee Jones and Sam Shepard, set in Texas, also Sissy Spacek was the love interest. I think Tommy Lee Jones also wrote the script and directed the movie. Matt played one of the sons in it. It was a fantastic film and I would love to see it again, but for the life of me I can't remember what it was called. Can anyone kick start my pathetic memory? MP

    Is it just me or has Matt lost weight?

    Sam Mendes and Matt would be amazing! I've loved Sam ever since I saw American Beauty (one of my faves). And, Kate Winslet is great too. I hope they make this movie.

    Plus, the Ocean's pics look great :) Is it just me or does Matt have the most amazing arms?

    >Is it just me or does Matt have the most amazing arms?

    No way is it just you. I was going to say the same thing. He looks like he's in great shape to me, meaty where he should be, and he's got a pair of arms that I would love to have wrapped around me!

    I would say that Matt's in shape for the next "Bourne" film.

    The item was that the movie project had fallen apart due to unspecified reasons. I too hope it can be resurrected.
