Matt Damon’s been in Vancouver the last few weeks shooting a movie. He was spotted yesterday, without hair, riding along the seawall with his wife and children and other family members. Some people don’t so great bald. He doesn’t look bad at all bald. In fact, it makes him look a lot younger. Look at him in the helmet. Like Good Will Hunting again, right?
The film is called Elysium. Or that’s what it was called a few months ago. They may be changing the title. Matt stars alongside Jodie Foster and Sharlto Copley written and directed by Neill Blomkamp. Very exciting. Because the last time Blomkamp and Copley worked together they gave us District 9. Elysium is once again a sci-fi feature, once again set in the future-ish. And beyond that, we don’t know much.
Matt has two movies out the second half of this year: Steven Soderbergh’s Contagion in September (trailer below), and We Bought A Zoo, adapted from the book and directed by Cameron Crowe, due in time for Christmas, with some buzz that it could contend at the Oscars. After Elysium he’s supposed to finally get to that Liberace biopic with Michael Douglas that they’ve been talking about for years. The man does Not.Stop.Working.
