Matt Damon Casts Frances McDormand in Directorial Debut; Talks About Learning from Great Directors

19 December 2011 9:25 PM, PST | | See recent news »

I am excited to see what Matt Damon can do as a director.  Over the past couple years, he has often spoken of his aspirations to direct after a decade plus working with the greats: Martin Scorsese, the Coen brothers, the Stevens (Spielberg and Soderbergh), Paul Greengrass, to name a few.  In a recent interview, Damon discussed how these directors influenced him, and we'll get to that after after that jump.  First, Damon revealed that he cast Frances McDormand in his directorial debut.  The project is based on an idea by Dave Eggers and John Krasinski, about "a salesman who goes to this small town and how the salesman is changed by his experience there."  Damon and Krasinski will also star in the film alongside McDormand.  Damon says they're trying to round out the cast, so hopefully we'll receive the full list in the coming weeks. Now back to Damon's approach to directing. »
