Martian, Bourne

  • From an interview with Ridley Scott at

    It’s a very challenging role for Matt because for most of the film he’s on his own...
    Scott: Exactly. You are all on your own and you are holding down the stage by yourself and you’ve got to keep it alive and keep it amusing. I think people know that Matt has a great sense of humour and he enabled himself to tap into that humour, which I would call laconic humour or gallows humour. But you know, all these elements mean that it comes down to a good film. And I loved working with Matt.

    You also build the Rover vehicle didn’t you?
    Yes, and that’s now in Wadi Rum, we gave it to the King of Jordan. He has a tank museum and he was very happy to have it – I’m sure he’s driving it right now.
