Playlist update

Playlist is reporting that Matt dropped out due to scheduling and unknown personal issues. Gus Van Sant may step in to direct.

Re: Playlist update

I hope that Matt is able to keep the project going - he obviously believes in it. Van Sant is a great director.

And, of course, given the latest playlist report, the next question inevitably becomes, what are the "personal issues"? That invites speculation, so I'll bet be more clarification will be coming at some point.

Or not. Deadline is now reporting that Gus Van Sant has committed to direct the Capra-esque film.

"Playlist is reporting that Matt dropped out due to scheduling and unknown personal issues..."

I hope it's nothing serious.
