Deadline - When Matt Damon was unable to commit the time to prep and direct the untitled film that he co-wrote and will star in with John Krasinski, Damon took the script to the director who helmed the last screenplay the actor co-wrote. Last night, Good Will Hunting director Gus Van Sant committed to helm the film, which is on track to start production early April. The project, which got a first draft from Dave Eggers when its title was Gold Mist, is a Capraesque tale in which Damon and Krasinski play rival corporate executives. Damon plays a sales executive who arrives in a small town only to have his whole life called into question. The film will be produced by Damon’s former Live Planet partner Chris Moore, Damon and Krasinski.
