Well, they've been working on it for quite some time, but it looks like they might finally be moving forward with it!
On Wednesday Matt Damon and pal Ben Affleck were snapped leaving a business meeting in Santa Monica, and this is the first look we've gotten at Matt's bald head, which is for his role in Elysium.
Though Ben is still wrapping up promotional duties for Argo, he seems to be forging ahead with several new projects, including this one, where Damon will play the infamous Boston gangster Whitey Bulger. Damon will portray Bulger through several phases of his life, including his rise and local Robin Hood-style infamy, the 19 murders for which he is allegedly responsible, along with racketeering, acting as an FBI informant and his years on the run.
Ben will direct the flick, but we won't be seeing it on the big screen for another year, or perhaps even longer. "My guess is honestly, [it'll be] the movie after next. I'll probably find something that's in better shape to do next until we got that one ready, and then we'll go ahead and fire that one up," he told IndieWire earlier this month. He sure is busy!
Can't wait for this!
