Matt Damon News Column
  • A rumor that Robin Williams may have a role in The Bourne Ultimatum is reported at Cinescape.

  • From IESB, Kevin Smith's explanation of why Matt could not take a role in Clerks 2:

    Q: Do you have any good casting stories?

    KS: Ben and Jason have been in 6 of the 7 movies I’ve made so that was a no-brainer. Matt Damon was going to be in it, but he was tied up with a Robert DeNiro movie so he couldn’t do it so I called Jason and he was nice enough to make time for this in his very busy My Name is Earl schedule.

  • From People's Fast Tracks section (adding almost no additional information to the earlier Boston Globe report):

    His daughter Violet was otherwise engaged, but Ben Affleck got the next best thing on July 7 - a visit from Matt Damon and his baby daughter Isabella on the Quincy, Mass. set of the thriller (and Affleck directorial debut) Gone, Baby, Gone.

    Matt will film all of his scenes for Oceans 13 up-front, with Bourne Ultimatum expected to commence filming probably in late August or September. The locations for Bourne don't appear to have been confirmed yet, or certainly haven't been made public yet (likely Berlin, London, NY).

    Ah well, he'll miss London's heatwave. Going to be 35 degrees today and 37 degrees tomorrow. Looking forward so much to the Bourne Ultimatum, also am I the only person who enjoyed Oceans 12, I loved it, thought it was really funny? MP

    Ocean's 12

    I also enjoyed Ocean's 12, thought I did think that Catherine Zeta Jones had too much screen time. People took the film too seriously. Accept it for what it is! Matt was hysterical in it - particularly that scene where they are planning the robbery from the 'handicapped guy'!
    I'm also suffering in London!

    Re: Ocean's 12

    I'm sorry he'll miss the heatwave in London its hotter than Nottingham but still hot here, 31 Degrees today & 34 tomorrow -its good :D (I'll probably stress about it later-then be happy again that we got it!)
    Can not wait for Bourne Ultimatum that will be great (love the first two so much) and Oceans12 i loved that aswell and thought it was funny, i agree some people took it to seriously! Matt 'hysterical'in it yep!

    This website http://www.nyc.gov/html/film/pdf/reeljobs.pdf
    indicated that Bourne Ultimatum will be shot in the New York location 1/2007-2/2007. I have seen other references to the filming being moved back to January also including IMDB.

    And there are other (more) references to Ultimatum starting in August or September.

    Matt hasn't been working out for months to get in shape for O13.

    Reeljobs has listed the NYC filming as being in January for weeks. Maybe it's the last part of the shoot - we'll all wait and see.

    eg this story on Cinematical in reference to the potential casting of Williams:

    As we already know by now, production on The Bourne Ultimatum is gearing up to begin sometime in the next month or so, with folks currently in the midst of casting...

    haha i saw on "jimmy kimmel live" that on the end of every show he says "my apologies to matt damon". i am really really curious as to why he says that. i wish someone could find out or when it started.

    I provided the answer on this site a couple of days ago - 12 July. (Thanks for reading!) I also posted it to Wikipedia.

    Re: The Good Shepherd

    I know (I don't link to IMDB posts). None have appeared yet on AICN, Dark Horizons or other 'official' film sites.
