Matt Damon News Column
Human Factor, Green Zone
  • Rugby coach Chester Williams talked about working with Matt at The Times:

    Although he would not reveal much, Williams did say that training Damon has "been easy".

    "I have been very fortunate to be training such a professional person in the game such as Matt Damon. He has a yearning to learn how to play, and has a clear understanding of the importance of the game as well," he said.

    "It’s been an honour and a privilege for me to be part of such a great film that will show how Madiba and the game managed to make such an impact on the country. It’s been a great time for me,” Williams said.

  • Welsh actor Julian Lewis Jones discussed working with Clint Eastwood on the film at Wales Online.

  • An early review of The Informant is here and a preview screening review of Green Zone is here.

  • Greg Kinnear talked about working with Paul Greengrass at Rotten Tomatoes.

    Later this year he'll be sees in Paul Greengrass' new film Green Zone, about the hunt for WMDs in Baghdad after the American invasion. "Paul is a remarkable director," he says. "He just has an immediacy on the set. He doesn't come in with a prearranged agenda of how things are going to go, and he's always chasing something that's not easily found. It's his own journey as a filmmaker, but I think everybody feels like you want to give him everything you've got, because the thing that he's searching for always translates to the screen, always creates these pictures that feel very vibrant. He has a way of making even smallest moments really big and lifelike on screen. It was wonderful."

  • Paul Greengrass discussed tricking commuters during the Waterloo Station scenes on Bourne Ultimatum here.

    It is often promoted that Matt will attend a poker event, but apart from Ante up for Africa, he never attends. So I'm wary about this event at Cannes, although it does purport to support Not on our watch.

    The Informant may premiere at Cannes (although this was denied last week), and if it does, Matt would likely attend the event. Otherwise, he should be filming in South Africa.
