Elysium news

  • Photos of Matt leaving a concert by Prince in LA last Saturday are at PopSugar and Just Jared.

  • Jodie Foster discussed her role in Elysium at MTV, Collider and the LA Times.

    At the end of an LA Times article about The Beaver, the paper says that Jodie Foster plays “a head of state on an alien planet” in Elysium.

    "I'm kind of evil-ish, yes, I'm kind of evil-ish, which you know I love," Foster said. "I'm just excited to work with Neil Blomkamp, the director of "District 9," which I think is pretty much as close to a perfect film that I can think of, and Matt Damon, who I'm a big fan of, and Sharlto Copley."

    Q: Is there anything else you can say about the film?
    FOSTER: Those sci-fi movies are all really hush-hush. I don’t even own a screenplay. They won’t even give me a screenplay. I’ve read it, but they won’t give me one to physically keep in my home ‘cause they’re so worried about everybody.

    Q: What was it about that project that appealed to you and made you want to get involved? Did you just want to work with Neill Blomkamp?
    FOSTER: Yes, definitely. He did District 9, which I think is as close to a perfect movie as you can get. It’s just an extraordinary film. And, this film has a lot of that social commentary in it, but uses sci-fi to get there. It’s great.

  • George Nolfi discussed The Adjustment Bureau at Jewish Journal. Nolfi is doing the audio commentary on the DVD solo.

    NPM: Matt Damon championed you getting signed on as the director – giving you the chance to make your directorial debut with a major studio film.

    GN: I showed the script to Matt right after I did “Ocean’s Twelve” with him. He was going off to do “The Bourne Ultimatum,” which I had been called in to [rewrite]. I went to England and worked on the script as they were shooting it for a long time, so he was very familiar with my work.

  • An indiscreet press release by a jewelery designer about a present Matt gave to Lucy is available here.

  • A photo of Matt with Colin Ford and Maggie Elizabeth Jones on the set of We Bought A Zoo when visited by Chick-fil-a is at their Facebook page. Saturday afternoon's wrap party was a BBQ for cast and crew with live music and a petting zoo.
