Robert F Kennedy film confirmed
  • The Robert F Kennedy project will start filming early next year. From the Hollywood Reporter:

    Nikolaj Arcel to Direct Matt Damon's Robert F. Kennedy Biopic

    The 'Dark Tower' director co-wrote the script for the biopic, in which Damon will play Kennedy.

    Matt Damon's Robert F. Kennedy biopic has found a director. The Dark Tower's Nikolaj Arcel has signed on to helm Matt Damon's long-gestating RFK film for Warner Bros., The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed. Arcel wrote the script for RFK, with Damon on board to play the assassinated presidential candidate, along with Rasmus Heisterberg and Felipe Marino.

    Robert F. Kennedy was fatally shot at Los Angeles' Ambassador Hotel on June 5, 1968, by Sirhan Sirhan as the senator was celebrating his victory in the California and South Dakota primary elections for the Democratic nomination for U.S. president.

    The RFK biopic to be helmed by Arcel will be produced by Jennifer Todd, Damon and Drew Vinton through Pearl Street Films.

    Production on the pic is set to start early next year. The Dark Tower, starring Idris Elba and Matthew McConaughey in Danish director Arcel's fantasy adaptation of the Stephen King series, is set for a July 28 release.

  • The project was first confirmed in this Danish article, located by Irina, where Nikolaj Arcel discusses the film. The scope of the film will be the four and half year period from John F Kennedy's death to Robert's death.

    "A lot of the movie takes takes place in Washington, and there are lots of politically dirty games. But it is also personal with a little brother stepping out of big brother's shadow. At the same time, the film has the epic and historical scope of 'A Royal Affair.'"

    Robert F Kennedy

    I have doubts and worries about the new project of Matt. From Director and screenwriter to the hero. Really, RFK is such an important and interesting figure about whom one can make a good film?

    And there is a question to the visitors journal. Hypothetically, what would you choose? Matt playing at Paul Greengrass Nessa or Nikolaj Arcel Robert Kennedy?

    Re: pic

    The comments seemed to be all in past tense, so I think it is old.

    I also am not sure about the director choice. Is Dark Tower meant to be any good? A Royal Affair was from 2012 (and that was only OK).

    Garry Speca

    Matt, Ben and Casey's former teacher Garry Speca is retiring:

    As a particular favorite, Mr. Speca also remembers Matt Damon dressed in a costume as an egg on toast as Humpty Dumpty. Mr. Speca laughed as he recalled how upset Mr. Damon was when a peer applauded his performance as “the toast.”

    Re: observation

    Like I said before, Matt is now a symbol of everything wrong in Hollywood. From Vanity Fair

    The Daily Show Is Not into HBO’s Controversial Confederate Show at All

    “Knowing Hollywood, the lead slave is probably going to be played by Matt Damon.”

    Confirmed for TIFF. If Matt tries to go to all of the Suburbicon/Downsizing festivals he's going to be run ragged!

    How are the interviews handled when an actor has two films at a festival? Does he have to do twice the number of interviews? I would think it would be awkward to try to shift gears & talk about different movies in the same interview.
