But just this week Damon backed out of directing the film, because scheduling issues, personal and professional, made the project impossible for him.

But the currently untitled film will still get made, and with Damon in the starring role. Krasinski will co-star, with he and Damon playing “rival corporate executives” in what is being called a Capraesque story. And now, Gus Van Sant will direct. Read More »

In almost every actor’s career there comes a time to make a clean-cut family tearjerker, and it seems that time has really come for John Krasinski, Drew Barrymore, Tim Blake Nelson, Stephen Root and many more as they take part in Big Miracle. The film finds Krasinski as a TV journalist stuck in small-town Alaska who discovers three whales trapped in the ice off the coast. Everyone with a soul, from townspeople to the big, bad Soviets, rallies to get the whales back to open water, and enough sympathetic, happy tears will probably be shed in the audience to create a new little whale habitat in every multiplex.

Now Damon has come out and said that he will direct his first movie early next year and that it’ll star John Krasinski, best known for his work on The Office. Is it Father Daughter Time or something else? Read after the break. Read More »
