First photo of Matt on Green Zone set
  • The first photo of Matt on the set of The Green Zone in Los Alcázares, Spain, is here, with a larger photo also available. Another report on filming and the selection of extras is also at La Opinion de Murcia (ignore the incorrect photo caption). Filming is expected to move shortly to Morocco.

    It's always exciting to see the first picture of Matt in a new film. Thanks for digging it out! I do like the short hair. Jan

    Thanks Jan, it's a rare pic. Most of the stories from Spain say Matt's been in hiding and very few of the extras have even seen him. But the latest report says that he's known for being "very pleasant and very nice" on set/in town.

    The memorial service was held tonight and Naomi Watts is the only 'name' mentioned so far.

    Did anybody watch the OneXOne event?

    The Bourne Ultimatum has won 'Outstanding Performance by a Stunt Ensemble in a Motion Picture' in the SAG awards. For whatever reason, it was announced prior to the actual awards ceremony. I'm proud to say I voted for it, and I'd like to imagine my vote is what beat 'Pirates of the Carribbean' out of the running. :D

    Yay! i was wondering how long it would be until we saw a glimpse of him on set. He looks really good and young.

    RE: Murcia

    I understand the filming is over but does anyone know how much longer he is in Spain? Whether we need to stop hunting or not?

    Re: Murcia

    I don't know. There have been conflicting reports of whether they have left for Morocco already, or are filming in other areas of Murcia/Spain.

    Re: Murcia

    One report on IMDB said the crew had left Spain for Morocco today, but earlier reports claimed they were in Murcia for two months.

    Greg Kinnear was pictured arriving at LAX (Los Angeles Airport) over the weekend, and Amy Ryan has finished til after the Oscars. Don't know who's left on set.

    Green Zone details

    The Working Title Films site has finally updated with some cast and crew details for Green Zone, including character names. They're still claiming a 2009 release date.

    Matt is playing Chief Warrant Officer Roy Miller.

    Felicity you are such an amazing detective! Glad to see it is a Working Title production.

    Good to see the stunt team win at the SAG awards - I had a look at the list of names, but Matt wasn't mentioned. Surely he is part of the stunt team - for jumping off the train at least!!!

    Working Title, stunts

    Yes, Working Title is a class organization. Is this their first action movie?

    I was also curious about whether Matt would get any credit for his stunts. The Ultimatum special features (which are great - lots of Matt!) clearly show that he did the train jump, as well as some driving and a large portion of the fight scene with Desh. It really doesn't seem quite fair for him to go unrewarded.

    It's cute seeing the tree behind him--gives him the mohawk look. ;)
