New film project

Matt's in talks to join Josh Brolin and Jeff Bridges' in the Coen Brothers' remake of True Grit:

The project would start filming in March (just after Matt films Hereafter).

Re: New film project

I don't think there's gonna be a Bourne movie anytime soon. True Grit ewww. Didn't like the first one.

Re: New film project

But it's a Coen Brothers movie and working with a friend in Josh Brolin. Nice.

Re: New film project

To tell the truth, I'm more excited about True Grit than any possible Bourne film. I am NOT a fan of John Wayne, but the cast being gathered by the Coens (Damon, Bridges, Brolin) plus Spielberg as a producer make TG a must-see for me.

Re: New film project

Spielberg is a producer on Hereafter also. I was more interested in Scott Rudin being a producer on the film (horrible to work with, by all accounts, but he makes great movies, and Matt's never worked with him before).

And Matt does a Paramount film for the first time since Ripley (co-production) or School Ties?

They're claiming the new version of True Grit will be more like the original book and not the John Wayne film (which I will watch tonight).

Bourne's not going to happen for a few years, but it is about time for Frank Marshall and Paul Greengrass to visit with Matt (Frank's Twitter has been silent on the subject).
