Photos, writing project

  • Matt and Lucy were photographed with actor Chris Hemsworth and his wife Elsa Pataky on a yacht in St Barts on Wednesday. Photos are at Zimbio, the Daily Mail, A Socialite Life and PopSugar.

  • An update on Matt and John Krasinski's writing project at New York magazine:

    As we feared, Warner Bros. has finally dropped plans to make Matt Damon's untitled next movie about a small-town salesman -- which he'd once intended to make his directorial debut on -- despite the fact that Gus Van Sant has come aboard to direct the film, which boasts an original script by Dave Eggers that was rewritten by Damon and John Krasinski. But despair not, McSweeney’s subscribers! We now also hear that Universal Pictures, eager to for a rapprochement with the studio's itinerant Jason Bourne, is in negotiations with Damon and his team about backing and distributing the $15 million drama. If the deal closes as expected this month, it could be shooting by late April or early May, and potentially paves the way for Damon's signature franchise to be re-Bourne.
