Ultimatum filming in Berlin this week
  • The Bourne Ultimatum will be filming this week in Berlin, mostly in night shoots. An article at Die Welt claims Matt has asked for a closed set (closed to press and spectators), but says he will answer questions about the film at the upcoming Berlinale.

  • An interview with Robert de Niro at The Times.

  • A brief article about Matt's meeting with author Tom Mangold in his Chiswick home in preparation for The Good Shepherd is here, including a photo and this excerpt.

    Mr Mangold said: "Paul Greengrass who directed Matt Damon in The Bourne Supremacy is a friend of mine. He phoned me up and said that Matt Damon was playing Angleton in a film and he wanted to talk to me and he asked if he could come round."

    The former Panorama journalist, who claims to have seen "every spy film ever made", said that Damon was "absolutely lovely and totally unselfconscious" during their three hour chat.

    He added: "We talked a lot of Hollywood gossip and then we spoke about the CIA and what motivated Angleton."

    The Times Culture magazine, where the interview is located put a picture of Robert De Niro on the front cover. There's also a lovely black and white silhoutte photograph of De Niro and Matt in the article. Matt is in character.

    It's a great interview actually. The normally taciturn De Niro had quite a lot to say. I was surprised to see it out so soon as the film isn't released here for another 3 weeks. MP

    In the Times article on De Niro (the link given by the moderator), De Niro has said nothing about Matt; instead he has referred to him as Matt Dillon. I am not happy with that interview.

    I think he refers to Matt as Matt Dillon as a joke...

    Definitely, it actually says that he refers to Matt Damon amusingly as Matt Dillon. MP

    He does mention his admiration of Matt, the full quote is below:

    'He mentions the younger actors he admires (DiCaprio ad Damon, obviously, and his kindred spirit Sean Penn)'. The rest of the paragraph then goes on to discuss other projects he'd like to do. I think the decision to say so little about Matt is probably an editorial one as a lot of inches is taken up with his past movies. MP
