Elysium re-shoots, various

  • There may be upcoming re-shoots for Elysium in Vancouver. From the Punkd Images Twitter:

    Interesting News... Matt Damon and VanCity shot Elysium coming back for 3-4 wks of reshoots...

  • Matt narrated a documentary on Fenway Park which is currently airing on PBS - details here.

  • Matt's photo in Kate Winslet's book in support of autistic children is at Satisfythecrave tumblr.

    Kate Winslet passed the hat quite literally after she founded a charity for autistic children.

    She dug up a beloved and battered old trilby and sent it around to celebrity friends asking that they either don it or doff it — and take picture of themselves doing so.

  • Possible filming locations for Promised Land continue to surface, including a West Mifflin School, an orchard and the town of Avonmore. A call for extras and stand-ins (presumably legit) is here.

  • A report on Matt's quick trip to Boston last Friday is at People:

    Massachusetts native Matt Damon recently sipped cocktails with friends at Alibi in Boston's Liberty Hotel. Over a few drinks in the hotel bar – which is set in the old "drunk tank" of what used to be Boston's Charles Street jail – the actor and father of four, 41, looked "relaxed," a source tells PEOPLE.

    "He was just hanging out," adds the source. "He seemed very chill, and was in a great mood."
