New Kathryn Bigelow project

Matt's mentioned in a Variety story as one of a group of top actors interested in a new Kathryn Bigelow/Mark Boal project:

While a handful of high-profile actors being interested in the same movie is nothing new, what is becoming more apparent is the effect certain casting decisions are having on other upcoming projects. decisions are having on other upcoming projects.

After "The Hurt Locker," it's not surprising that actors want to work with Kathryn Bigelow and Mark Boal on their next project, but even for jaded Hollywood, the roster of actors they've been meeting with is impressive. Will Smith, Matt Damon, Leonardo DiCaprio, Sean Penn, Christian Bale, Javier Bardem and Jake Gyllenhaal have either asked Bigelow and Boal for a look at the script or taken meetings to discuss the film.
That's in addition to Tom Hanks and Johnny Depp, who are also interested in the project, "Triple Frontier." Since there are four lead roles, there could be various powerhouse combinations. And since many of these thesps are planning other films, the casting could create a ripple effect on a platoon of projects.

Depp is attached to "Dark Shadows" and "The Lone Ranger"; Damon is onboard for "We Bought a Zoo" and a Robert Kennedy biopic; and there are a slew of films on DiCaprio's plate, including "Hoover," with Clint Eastwood set to helm.
