Matt Damon, a long-time advocate for safe water issues, explains the importance of launching Water.org. "Every 15 seconds, a child in the developing world dies from water-related disease. After visiting project sites in Africa and Asia with Gary, I’ve seen the problem and the impact of safe water." Damon said, "As a clear leader in the sector at delivering innovative and sustainable solutions for those in need, WaterPartners was the natural choice with whom to work to truly affect lasting change."
Emily Blunt has landed the female lead in "Adjustment Bureau," joining Matt Damon in the George Nolfi-directed science fiction thriller adapted from the Philip K. Dick short story.
Damon plays a smooth-talking congressman whose political future is thrown in doubt by a series of uncontrollable events and the arrival in his life of a mysterious ballerina, played by Blunt.
Nolfi wrote the script. Production begins in mid-September in Gotham.
Adrian Grenier: "Matt Damon recently was a lot of fun, he's a really good guy actually. I was very shocked to see how humble he is," he said.
Jeremy Piven: "I don’t have a favourite one [guest star]. But like the idea that… we just did a scene with Matt Damon and LeBron James and it was one of the most surreal moments in the world. Two people you would never imagine to be in the same room together."
Matt Damon is one of Hollywood’s most sought-after talents. Most recently he completed filming The Informant for director Steven Soderbergh and Invictus for director Clint Eastwood. Both films are due for release this fall.
Following the release of these films audiences will see Damon reteam with director Paul Greengrass on The Green Zone.
On The Informant!
"It's really good, it's one of my favorite movies he [Soderbergh]'s ever done".
On the Liberace project
Jules: It sounds like a lot of fun and Matt Damon has agreed to play the Scott Thorson guy and Michael Douglas is going to play Liberace.
Jules: That’s what I love about Matt Damon too, because you forget he’s Jason Bourne, he is Jason Bourne, but he will do this other stuff and really put himself out there. He put on I think 30 to 40 pounds and then had to take it all off quickly to do Green Zone. He had to get in super shape."
