    Elysium is going to be a GIGANTIC box office success -- I can sense it.

    Any idea how long the reshoots will take?

    Elysium / London

    On the teamsters site there's a reference to re-shoot prepping for October 11 and 12, but I don't know if that's just prep work or the whole shoot.


    If anyone wants to ask one of the Notting Hill shops that Matt visited whether Lucy was there, the websites are:


    The second pic of Stella is really cute:

    Re: Elysium / London

    London's trip sounds like a little getaway (something that probably Lucy would arrange) to spend Matt's birthday with their friends......and Tom Cruise.

    Stella is such a cutie pie!!!

    Re: Elysium / London

    Stella is so cute but I don't think she likes the paps. That's the downside of these pics.

    Ny post stated that John k arranged Matt's party. I can't see Lucy not being there especially for his bday celebration. Usually on a night out like this with friends Lucy is usually there. I'm not on Facebook and one of the pics has comments already but I can't see. If somebody to ds out let us know.

    At comic con he made it sound he was happy to have his hair back after the long shoot. I wonder how he feels to have to do it again.

    I see that my sentiments are shared about Tom cruise. I think Emily was just being nice to invite him. :)

    New role


    The bald head is for a small part in a terry Gilliam film not Elysium. He has to wear a wig.

    Re: New role

    Ok I'm a little confused. There's a statement in there that says the bald head is for the terry Gilliam film but Matt is making sound like he had to shave head (for Elysium?) so now he has to wear a wig. So it looks like hes still doing Elysium reshoots and this film? Am I understanding correctly?

    Re: New role

    I think you're right. I understand that too.

    Re: New role


    This is a q&a with Matt from last night that explains it better. He's doing 2 days of reshoots for Elysium next wk and 3 days for the terry Gilliam film later this month. Looks like he'll be wearing wigs for both.

    Sorry if I can edit my previous comments I would have. You can def. delete.

    Re: New role

    Great update:


    Ben's Hollywood Reporter interview:
    When he's not with his family, he's at home working in a "sort of little office hut" or developing material through Pearl Street Productions, the Warners-based company he runs with Damon, who has remained a lodestar throughout the ups and downs and who now lives down the street from him. "We see each other almost too often," laughs Affleck. "I wonder if his wife is thinking, 'Is he really going to come over every night?'"

    Stella is a cutie pie and she's a spitting image of her hot daddy!

    where is he living

    from the interview ben gave the reporter it sounds like matt and family are already in the west coast.but they are still being seen in new york.it is confusing too where they are really living.

    Re: where is he living

    The print interviews were probably completed weeks ago, when Matt and co. were still in LA.

    Kind of shocked about the Gilliam movie. One, it's Gilliam, and two, he's going all the way to Europe to shoot a few days in a miniscule supporting part? Really? It's hard for me to understand how that could possibly be in his best interest, looking strictly from a career point of view.

    Re: where is he living

    Matt's back in NY for the school year.

    Because there was so much press about Matt living near Ben a lot of people think he is living in LA, and that's incorrect.

    Matt is finally saying that its unlikely Paul greengrass will come back to franchise and as a result he won't be back. (Nothing really new) Tony gilroy was at the Argo screening. Wonder if they just avoided each other.

    I hope reporters would let this die. He's probably sick of being asked.

    Re: Bourne

    This was the original article about Bourne:

    The author didn't realise Tony Gilroy was at the same party (awkward).

    A tweet from Erik Davis (Movies.com):

    Matt Damon likely not returning for Bourne; has politely requested that you stop asking him f**king Bourne questions.
