Running the Sahara, sightings
  • The Running the Sahara journey has been completed, with reports at the one.org blog and here:

    Overcoming heat, kidnap threats, land mines and border snafus, three runners from Taiwan, Canada and the United States have completed their six-nation, 7 300km cross-Sahara ultra-endurance marathon in 111 days.

    The trip was originally planned for 85 days over 6 500km but [took] detours to avoid being kidnapped by armed rebels in Mauritania and land mines in Libya.

  • More photos from Bourne Ultimatum filming in New York are from the NY Post, NY Daily News and Globe Photos, including:

    Fantastic news that the 3 runners have successfully completed their challenge. Thank you for keeping us updated with their progress over the last few months. I'm looking forward to seeing the documentary when it's finished, though I may have a long wait as I don't know when it will be shown here.

    Thank you for all the great work you do on this site Felicity, I for one am very grateful. MP

    Just a thought about continuity. From what I remember, the NY scene in Supremacy there was no snow and there seems to be quite a lot now. Nice pics though. Jan

    NY Daily News

    Item from the NY Daily News:

    Matt Damon and his family were spotted shopping for bedding at ABC Carpet & Home. Gushes a spy: "Their baby girl is beyond adorable, dressed all in pink as Mama bundled her in her winter coat on one of the beds in the department. Matt was courteous enough to take a photo with the sales ladies that helped them, even taking off his baseball cap so they could get a good face shot."

    Saw Matt Damon filming the Bourne Ultimatum. I think they were filming a chase seen with tons of cars. He had a duffle bag. Very short.

    Interview at IndieLondon (which appears to be exactly the same as the above):

    Interview with De Niro:

    Interview with Angelina:
    Q. Did you know Matt [Damon] from All the Pretty Horses?
    A: No. We met but we didn’t hang out together. We’d met through the years casually but this was the first time we’d really worked together. And since then, he’s friendly with Brad and our kids are friends. He’s very serious in the film and it’s a good job we’d met, otherwise it’d have been pretty uncomfortable on the first day on set. Instead we laughed a lot. It was a relief because it was pretty intense in that house.
