Yéle Haiti benefit, Ultimatum
  • Matt is expected to attend a fundraising dinner benefit for Yéle Haiti (Wyclef Jean's charity) in Haiti on Friday 14 December. Singer Akon will also attend, with Wyclef scheduled to perform at a free concert on 15 December. Details (in French) are at Metropole Haiti.

  • Producer Frank Marshall discusses the possibility of another Bourne sequel and the Lance Armstrong bio-pic at Coming Soon.net:

    While we were talking to Mr. Marshall about The Bourne Ultimatum, we wondered whether there was any serious possibility about a fourth movie, after Matt Damon has told reporters in recent months that he's reticent about returning. "There were only three books written. I know they've written a fourth but it wasn't written by Ludlum," Marshall said. "Look, we would love to continue the franchise. We just need a great story, and we're not going to do it unless we have a great story, but we are working on coming up with one, and Matt said to me, ‘Look, you hand me a great script, I'm in.' Unfortunately, we're not able to do any writing at the moment, but we're all thinking about it."

    In the meantime, Marshall is currently looking for a director for the Lance Armstrong biopic, and that's the most current thing on his plate. "That one is on the frontburner. I hope to have that up and shooting by next summer. Lance is involved in everything, as much as he wants, but I actually just talked to him yesterday about it, and we're flying down to hopefully meet a new director on Friday. I hope it's going to happen next summer."

  • A more detailed look at the Bourne Ultimatum DVD is at the Washington Times, and a clip is at Access Hollywood. Bourne Ultimatum was also named one of the year's top 10 films by the National Board of Review.

  • Empire magazine lists Matt as the 17th sexiest movie star of all time here.

    Naybe a 4th Bourne without a 10 Year wait??

    Wow! My heart went all fluttery when I read "... Matt said to me, ‘Look, you hand me a great script, I'm in..." Without the usual follow-up "in ten years". Not sure why it matters that Ludlum didn't write a 4th book since the movie is 99% different from the books anyway! Hope the DVD sells in a fantastical way to help make a 4th - with Paul and Matt of course, and another base script from the Mr. Gilroy. Thanks so much for the updates! Take care, Cheryl
