Garcia Bernal not in Ultimatum
  • Gael Garcia Bernal will not be in The Bourne Ultimatum (and the Hollywood Reporter should never have reported that he was a possible cast member before an offer went out) - from Coming Soon:

    Several weeks ago, The Hollywood Reporter said that an offer had gone out to Mexican actor Gael Garcia Bernal to play the nemesis in The Bourne Ultimatum, which is currently shooting. CHUD caught up with the actor, who said he's not taking on the role.

    "I love those movies," he told me, but he won't be taking the role. The reason, he said is that he's finishing up his directorial debut, Deficit, a film about some rich boys who learn some tough lessons. It's a vague description, but Bernal says that because hes basically rewriting the film in the editing room.

    Matt & Isabella

    There are so many pictures of Ben holding Violet on the internet but there isn't a single photo of Matt carrying Isabella in his arms :-( Photos of Ben and Violet are sooo cute. I wish there was atleast one such pic Of Matty with his adorable cutie. BTW its been days that there hasn't been any pic of Matt. He is shooting TBU yet.......?

    You've created a very good site. Maintaining it must be very tiresome. Very much appreciate your hard work.

    Re: Matt & Isabella

    Matt's filming Bourne overseas, so it's a lot harder to get candid paparazzi photos than if you are based in LA and have regular haunts.

    At this stage, Matt has no other projects after Ultimatum. Matt has indicated he may be writing a new project, then directing it.

    But Matt says he will most likely write an original script to direct. Ben (and a friend) adapted a novel by Dennis Lehane to direct.

    Re: Next film

    Yeah, but you're assuming that the people who say that are basically saying "Matt's a copycat." I disagree with that assumption. I think that what they are saying is that their lives mirror each others, that they run in pararell lines. At least that's my interprutation of those comments.

    Can't wait for that -- Hollywood needs more original ideas. Thanks!

    Matt & Ben in London?

    Benis going to be on the Jonathan Ross show on Friday night. The show tapes on Thursday night, and it's also the start of the London Film Festival where Hollywoodland is showing.

    Any chance of them hooking up? MP.

    Matt at theatre show?

    I read in the sunday mirror (not the most reliable paper, I know..) that Matt went to a west end show with pals Vince Vaughn and Jennifer Aniston. Do you think there's any truth in this? Btw: love your website!

    Re: Matt at theatre show?

    Matt was friends with both of them separately, so it's possible...

    Here's the item from the Sunday Mirror (which also seems to have a photo of Jennifer at the show, but it's not on the website).

    "Jennifer Aniston and Vince Vaughn seemed very happy yesterday at hit musical, Wicked, in the West End with pal Matt Damon."
