Sometimes I’m not quite sure we post these first look photos. Because sometimes a set photo of Jennifer Aniston just looks like Jennifer Aniston wearing jogging shorts, and sometimes Matt Damon just looks like Matt Damon in military scrubs. But for some reason or another we post them. Sometimes it’s the lemming theory where one movie website shoots and the others domino, or sometimes, like today, news is just so damn slow, that it becomes a choice of posting this or a story about Paul Schneider and Kerry Fox being cast in Bright Star. We refuse to post news that doesn’t interest us on /Film, so a Paul Greengrass film starring Matt Damon will win out 9 out of 10 times.
Based on Rajiv Chandrasekaran book (Imperial Life in the Emerald City: Inside Iraq’s Green Zone), Paul Greengrass‘ Green Zone stars Matt Damon as a CIA officer on the hunt for traces of WMDs. Green Zone is scheduled to hit theaters in 2009.
