    Re: Bourne

    It probably is a rumor but I will lose all respect for Matt if comes back to do this Bourne movie. This one will be worse that Legacy because of the director who will turn it into a Fast and Furious type bourne movie. The total opposite of they type of Bourne movies Matt wanted to make.

    Re: Bourne

    I can't see any reason why he would take part in a Justin Lin movie.

    Re: Bourne

    I don't think it can be assumed that Lin only knows how to make one kind of movie. However, if Matt is coming back it's certain they have a great idea, which he really believes in. A classier, more proven director may also be part of the deal. This assumes,of course, that there really is a deal.

    It's pretty funny, these rumors start popping up whenever the studio is getting nervous. They obviously just threw out a script, so they throw out a Matt rumor. Trying to reassure the stockholders, I guess. Lol.

    Re: Bourne, In Touch

    And right on schedule the rumor has been denied. Why do people fall for it every time?

    http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/heat-vision/bourne-producer-no-matt-damon-713738

    On history repeating, here's a Celebitchy article about a dodgy In Touch story which uses old quotes and make them appear new (all quotes are old).

    http://www.celebitchy.com/372379/matt_damon_claims_hes_an_everyman_im_not_brad_pitt_or_george_clooney/#comment-14064900

    Or maybe they've mixed in old quotes with some new ones from the Boston MGH event. Are these quotes new? (Translated and it's not accurate)

    http://www.klatsch-tratsch.de/2014/06/21/matt-damon-meine-frau-hat-mir-den-spitznamen-roter-alarm-gegeben/208025

    For ten years, Damon and the Argentine happily married. He reveals what is the secret to long-lasting relationship: "I think our secret is that we talk a lot. But I would not dare, as to speak for someone else, "In the 37-year-old brunette of the Hollywood star is still in love and says:".., You will just keep getting better with age "

    In Touch

    Here's the original text:

    http://www.contactmusic.com/story/matt-damon-likes-family-time_4254556

    {I think making sure to carve out time for the family to be together on vacation is a good thing. We've done a lot of great vacations that I wouldn't mind going on again.''

    Matt has been happily married to Argentina-born Luciana for 10 years and thinks communication is the secret to their happy loving relationship.

    He said: "I think our key is talk a lot. But I wouldn't dare speak for anyone else."

    The heartthrob is still besotted with his the brunette beauty, 37 and thinks age has made her even more attractive.

    He added to In Touch magazine: "She just gets better with age."

    Re: Bourne, In Touch

    People believe the Bourne rumor every time because they so badly want it to be true!

    Poker book

    Molly Bloom isn't going to slam Matt in her poker book:
    http://gma.yahoo.com/inside-life-celebrity-poker-madam-112138995--abc-news-celebrities.html

    According to Bloom, Matt Damon was nothing like the poker addict in his movie “Rounders.”

    “He was lovely, modest, down-to-earth, very gracious,” Bloom said. “And to further that point, he never came back.”

    Just so people dont watch the Kelly and Michael interview is in fact a repeat from MM.

    Kelly and Michael

    Somehow I had missed this interview so I'm enjoying it. Funniest quote: "Luckily, George (Clooney) is afraid of Lucy."

    Re: Kelly and Michael

    It was a rerun on Kelly and Michael this morning and it's not available online.

    What was the quote in relation to Paula? I've never seen the interview.

    Re: Kelly and Michael

    No. The official video seems to include more videos now than they used to, but nothing with Matt yet.

    Re: Kelly and Michael

    The comment came when he was asked about the two week rule. He said that when he was asked to be in the movie he reminded George about the rule, "and luckily George is afraid of Lucy." It was cute.

    Re: Photo

    I notice that People put up one of the photos with the caption "because sometimes you just need to look at Matt Damon smiling".

    So true, especially with all the awfulness going on in the world, it's nice to know that somewhere Matt is still smiling!

    The Martian will shoot in the fall, poker

    Will be Ridley Scott's next film

    http://blogs.indiewire.com/theplaylist/simon-kinberg-says-ridley-scotts-next-film-is-martian-with-matt-damon-shoots-this-fall-20140624

    To film in Australia? September in Sydney would be nice, but would all the filming be here or just externals before moving back to LA or elsewhere?

    Another nice quote from Molly Bloom about Matt:

    Re: The Martian will shoot in the fall, poker

    I know you're not a fan of Scott, but I am beyond excited! Yowza! A sci-fi movie with a Ridley Scott!! Wow!!! Congratulations, Matt! No wonder he's smiling in those photos.

    And it does sound as if it'll shoot in Australia, apparently in the fall. But what becomes of the two week rule? Does he bring the kids with him?

    Re: The Martian will shoot in the fall, poker

    It's clearly in school term time, and Matt has previously said he would have difficulty working in Australia due to the distance from LA. That's why I was thinking that it would mainly be exteriors shot in Australia, but to get the local film tax credit you probably couldn't do interiors elsewhere. So it would most likely be shot at Fox Studios in Sydney and other nearby locations.

    Having read the book now, it also seems very difficult to film and I wouldn't have thought Matt should be bulking up months out to play a guy who is an astronaut/engineer/botanist.
