'Fighter' update
  • An update on The Fighter from Mark Wahlberg at IGN:

    Wahlberg confirmed that Scorsese had indeed read the screenplay for The Fighter but, having already done one film set in Boston as well as the boxing classic Raging Bull, he was not interested in directing the pugilist drama.

    The Oscar nominee added that both he and Damon are waiting for the script to get to a place where they're both willing to sign on but that it could hopefully be his next film.

    Wahlberg added that there are "a couple of guys" interested in directing The Fighter right now but declined to name names.

  • The next episode of Journey to Planet Earth airs on March 28 - here:

    Oscar winner Matt Damon will return for his fourth season as host/narrator of PBS's science-and-nature series, Journey to Planet Earth. "State of the Ocean's Animals" airs March 28.

    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.

  • A sighting 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."

  • An interview with Matt is here, an interview with De Niro here, and with Angelina here.

  • A photo of Matt in New York here.

    Article: "... Best picture contender "The Departed," from Warner Home Video, rode Oscar buzz to easily take the top spot on the national DVD sales and rental charts for the week ending Feb. 18.

    The crime drama, with a $126.8 million boxoffice take, debuted at No. 1 on Nielsen VideoScan's First Alert DVD sales chart and Home Media Magazine's DVD rental chart, easily outdistancing any and all competitors.

    On the sales chart, "Departed" bumped the previous week's top seller, Buena Vista's "Cinderella III," to No. 2, outselling the direct-to-video sequel by a margin of 5-to-1.

    On the rental chart, "Departed" also pushed last week's No. 1 title, DreamWorks-Paramount's "Flags of Our Fathers," to No. 2, generating rental revenue estimated at $9.9 million to $6.3 million earned by "Flags" in its sophomore week in stores. ..."
