Green Zone to shoot in Spain and Morocco
  • It's a return to two Bourne locations for the upcoming Green Zone - details from an article at Variety:

    Biggest of all, arguably, is the imminent arrival of Paul Greengrass' Iraq drama "Imperial Life in the Emerald City," starring Matt Damon. Pic is set to lense in Morocco once it has completed its shoot in Spain, which begins in January. That production is being serviced by Zak Aloui's Zak Prods., which also repped Scott's "Body of Lies" and "The Bourne Ultimatum," the previous Greengrass-Damon collaboration.

  • More about the Red Sox DVD from Red Sox.mlb.com:

    Narrated by actor, noted Boston native and Red Sox fan Matt Damon, the official "2007 World Series Film," produced by Major League Baseball Productions and Shout Factory and available for $19.99, provides a detailed look at the seventh Boston Red Sox World Series championship by capturing the complete story of the 2007 Fall Classic. It will be released nationwide Nov. 27.

    "This is the crown jewel of all our DVD releases throughout the year," said Elizabeth Scott, MLB Productions' vice president of programming and business affairs. "This is the one we put the greatest amount of our energy into. We make every effort to get the best voice-over talent we can get, and in this case, we came through with Matt Damon.

    "He had such a great time doing his voicing session. He was so disappointed he wasn't available to do this in '04 [when the DVD was narrated by comedian and actor Denis Leary], that he was delighted to be asked to do it this year. And he did a phenomenal job."

    I may have to get this baseball DVD because of the many things I like about Matt I like his voice best of all. Can't wait to get the Ultimatum DVD now either, if he and Greengrass are doing the commentary. (Remember when Matt, Brad, and Andy won a People's Choice(?) award for the O11 DVD?)

    Video

    Another strange but fun video from Japan of Matt meeting a world champion whistler, receiving some presents and joining in a group performance of "We are the world".

    Re: Video

    OMG, that video was so weird and sort of funny...The Japanese people sure have some, well, original shows...;))). But I could't stop laughing at Matt's face when those guys were whistling, he was like "what the hell am I doing here???lol. I wonder what those guys were saying after he left the studio, hmmm... I bet that they were impressed at how down to earth and friendly he was.

    Oh, and I came across another funny video of Matt's that I haven't seen before and I was wondering if you had any idea when this was made and for what show, I'm really curious.It's this one:

    Re: Video

    That was a skit from a Saturday Night Live show. I can't remember exactly when, but it was a few years ago.

    Matt Voted #2 of 49 "Top Men"

    While I've never heard of this web-site, it's always great to see Matt talked about in a positive way, so am forwarding this link from "askmen.com" Mmmh, rather interesting webname, eh? One letter away from being rather naughty. Here's the URL. Got it from a banner on Rotten Tomatoes http://www.askmen.com/specials/2007_top_49/matt-damon-2.html. I so hope that "Imperial Life in the Emerald City" happens. Thanks for all the updates! -- Take care, Cheryl
