Matt Damon May Direct And Star In Father Daughter Time
It's always been suggested that Matt Damon would one day move behind the camera and become a director, putting into effect all of the things he's learned from working with the greats, such as Martin Scorsese, Steven Soderbergh, the Coen brothers, Clint Eastwood, and Paul Greengrass. The real questions were when he would do it and what project he would choose. Today may be the day those questions are answered.
Deadline is reporting that Warner Bros. working on a deal to acquire a spec script called Father Daughter Time: A Tale of Armed Robbery and Eskimo Kisses by writer Matthew Aldrich, and that Matt Damon is considering starring in the project and making it his directorial debut. Damon is also expected to produce the project alongside Ben Affleck, Chris Moore and Drew Vinton. The film is about a father who goes on the road with his daughter as they go "on a three-state crime spree."
Ever since Affleck shocked the world when he directed Gone Baby Gone in 2007 I've been incredibly curious to see what Damon could do behind the lens. Just last year the actor told a roundtable of reporters that he planned on learning while watching the Coens do their thing during True Grit. It will be interesting to find out what he took away from the experience.
