Matt Damon News Column
True Grit, Margaret
  • Jeff Bridges discussed True Grit with MTV:

    Bridges' non-"Lebowski" reunion with Joel and Ethan Coen, "True Grit," is in post-production and scheduled for a December release. Bridges stars opposite Matt Damon, Josh Brolin and Barry Pepper in a remake of sorts of the 1969 Western that became synonymous with the great John Wayne.

    "I hope it's going to be a great Western," Bridges told MTV News.

    "You've got the Coen brothers — master filmmakers — doing a Western for the first time, something they were really excited about," he continued. "To be a part of that was great. It's based on a great book by the same title, 'True Grit.' They are really basing the movie on the book, as opposed to the John Wayne [film]."

  • Margaret may finally be released in 2011 - an update from The Playlist, with the original report at Indiewire.

    Fox Searchlight states: "we do have a finished cut by Lonergan and we plan to release the film sometime in 2011."

  • From an article about NZ entertainment reporter Kate Rodger at the Sunday Star Times:

    Rodger, who has schmoozed many a Hollywood star on the red carpet, says her favourite interview subject is Matt Damon: "Even after three interviews he still does everything he can in whatever short timeframe we have to give me as much as he can - he's a total gentleman."

  • From an interview with Entourage actor Rex Lee at the Herald-Sun:

    There have been a lot of fantastic guest stars in Entourage over the years. Who has been your favourite?
    Lee: Matt Damon was amazing. I didn't have any scenes with him or meet him but when I saw it on the air I thought, "wow, he puts us all to shame he is so amazing".

  • Matt is now back in Hawaii after a quick trip to Boston.

    From the Dartmoor Zoo Twitter:

    We've been promised some "good news" about #WeBoughtaZoo this week. Sworn to secrecy though :)

    Don't know if this is really true, but I guess they're drawing their wagons in a circle??!!


    A villa in Italy! That's right--just what I need, too! I'm sure Matt and and his lovely wife will enjoy it.

    Matt buying a villa in Italy?

    I would be very surprised if Matt buys a villa at Lake Como, George Clooney is having and has had a hell of a time with paparazzi there and gets virtually no privacy at all, any time Matt's holidayed there he, Lucy and the kids have been photographed, Matt likes his privacy and especially wants to protect his kids so no i personally cant see this happening - Froggy

    Re: Matt buying a villa in Italy?

    Matt said a few years ago that he talked to George about buying a villa in Lake Como and George said it was a waste of money and he could stay at his villa any time. George said to buy a home in an interesting location so he could come visit.

    And if there was any truth in it, now that the agent has gone to the media I'm sure Matt's gone elsewhere.

    Having them all in one place would invite a perfect storm of papparazzi. Sounds to me like the agent is trying to boost sales.
