'The Informant' now filming in Decatur
  • Photos of Matt filming a scene in Decatur, Illinois, on Sunday for The Informant are at the Herald-Review, by Lisa Morrison. Also at the site is video footage of the filming and Matt meeting fans. Available at the newspaper's special section for the film is a photo of Matt with fans from last Thursday.

  • More video footage (and some photos) from Sunday's filming is at WANDTV.com.

  • Details regarding the filming schedule from Tim Cain's column in the Herald Review.

    We (and by “we” I mean the Herald & Review, not a royal “I”) have been reporting the filming in Decatur will be three weeks, May 3-23. That now appears to account for the total time the production will spend in the Illinois area. The Decatur/Macon County filming (because some work will be done at Whitacre’s former residence in Moweaqua) concludes Saturday, May 17. It will be followed by two days in Springfield and a day each in St. Louis and Springfield before returning to Los Angeles.

    Indications are more than half of the movie will be completed by the time filming here is finished. If the standard of one page of script equals a minute of film applies, “The Informant” will be close to 2½ hours after shooting finishes in June in Hawaii.

  • A summary of last week's misquotes and poor web reporting regarding Matt's involvement in the upcoming Bourne video game is at Variety.

  • Matt's on the cover of the March/April issue of UK parenting magazine FQ, which may still be available in selected shops.

    I'm relieved to see...

    ...that Matt has a prostetic nose. That's what makes him look so different whether or not the hair is a wig.

    Re: I'm relieved to see...

    Not another fake nose to dominate press junket talk!

    I've been trying to find pictures of the younger Whitacre, but only two photos of an older Whitacre are easily located on the web:


    And he's got his own website!

    A report on yesterday's filming and crowd interaction at the Herald Review:



    “This is the first picture I’ve ever taken in a wig and fake mustache.”

    Green Zone, Informant

    'Green Zone' finished filming on 2 May, according to a few blog comments by extras. Matt only missed about two weeks.

    Matt's up for two MTV Awards, but he's never won one before. Best Male Performance and Best Fight (with Joey Ansah). Ultimatum wasn't one of the seven nominees for Best Film (how quickly they forget).

    Voting's open:

    A few bad photos from the Hickory Point Mall filming are at the Herald & Review gallery. A local paper says Matt now looks like Ned Flanders. Yep.

    Re: Informant

    Ned Flanders, huh? Well, as Ned would say, "Ok-ily dok-ily!"

    Har - har! I've now read about 170 pages in the book (thanks for the recommendation) and can definitely see the attraction for Matt. This guy was all over the place emotionally. It's a great character to play. Can't wait.

    Warner Independent Pictures?

    Hi! I apologize for not being around. Work has been kicking my butt for over a month!

    There's an article in today's Variety about WB suddenly closing WIP. Any word on how this will impact the release of the picture?

    Re: Warner Independent Pictures?

    There's an article in yesterday's LA Times saying that Informant was a Warners picture originally, but due to its high profile went over to WIP to boost that division.

    As Informant wasn't mentioned in the press release about WIP and Picturehouse closing (they only mentioned the films coming out this year), I presume Informant just goes back to the mainstream division. It shouldn't delay the movie or affect it at all.

    Sarah Palin

    Yeah thought this was one actor who could keep his bs to himself.
    Palin is a governor stupid....and Obama is a community organizer stupid.

    Sarah Palin

    Matt Damon is a closet fag and should have had a penis in his mouth when he opened it talking about Sarah Palin. Just like stinking liberal to beat back a perfectly good governor, who by the way likely has a better approval rating that Matt stupid ass Damon.

    Shut you big ass idiot make your stupid movies and shut the hell up.
