Updates on New Projects From Matt Damon and Ben Affleck

As we feared, Warner Bros. has finally dropped plans to make Matt Damon's untitled next movie about a small-town salesman — which he'd once intended to be his directorial debut — despite the fact that Gus Van Sant has come aboard to direct the film, which boasts an original script by Dave Eggers that was rewritten by Damon and John Krasinski. But despair not, McSweeney’s subscribers! We now also hear that Universal Pictures, eager to for a rapprochement with the studio's itinerant Jason Bourne, is in negotiations with Damon and his team about backing and distributing the $15 million drama. If the deal closes as expected this month, it could be shooting by late April or early May, and potentially paves the way for Damon's signature franchise to be re-Bourne.

The story is too old to be commented.

I think they both are very talented and don't have to worry about anything. I found a new respect for Affleck when he started directing. As for Damon...he can do just about everything and do it well.
