Informant still, photos
  • The first still from The Informant and a plot summary is at SFLuxe:

    Official Synopsis: What was Mark Whitacre thinking? A rising star at agri-industry giant Archer Daniels Midland (ADM), Whitacre suddenly turns whistleblower. Even as he exposes his company’s multi-national price-fixing conspiracy to the FBI, Whitacre envisions himself being hailed as a hero of the common man and handed a promotion.

    But before all that can happen, the FBI needs evidence, so Whitacre eagerly agrees to wear a wire and carry a hidden tape recorder in his briefcase, imagining himself as a kind of de facto secret agent. Unfortunately for the FBI, their lead witness hasn’t been quite so forthcoming about helping himself to the corporate coffers. Whitacre’s ever-changing account frustrates the agents and threatens the case against ADM as it becomes almost impossible to decipher what is real and what is the product of Whitacre’s rambling imagination. Based on the true story of the highest-ranking corporate whistleblower in U.S. history.

  • A photo of Matt and Isabella in Miami is at Celebrity Baby Blog, with more photos at PopSugar and a related reference at the Miami Herald.

    Matt Damon, his wife Luciana and two of their kids were spotted shopping at Genius Jones off Lincoln Road on Friday afternoon.

    Informant, Liberace, Milk, Bourne

    Wow, all the information you've been providing about "The Informant" has been really interesting because I thought this was going to be a serious movie. Sounds like it'll be a lot more fun. "Milk" has rave reviews, but its been out for 3 weeks and has earned less than 8 Million; glad that Matt wasn't able to be in it. Which makes me think of the Liberace movie. Still think it sounds weird that he'll play Liberace's "friend". Am sure it's a great opportunity, and a chance to show his range. Was really surprised when you found that Matt and Greengrass have NOT been signed for Bourne 4. Interesting. Glad Matt isn't obligagted and that he's waiting for a script. Anyway, as always, I really appreciate all your work. Thanks, Cheryl

    Hi Maureen, good to hear from you.

    The Milk project was never going to make much money, but it is critically acclaimed, and may get awards. That's enough.

    Emma Watson talks about meeting Matt:
