Matt Damon Will Make Directorial Debut with John Krasinski

October 20, 2011


Having felt each other's All-American energy by proxy, using Emily Blunt hand-holding as a conduit, Matt Damon and John Krasinski will at last merge in a yet-untitled drama for Warner Bros.

The two--seen above being particularly All-American in what TMZ describes as "a guitar/gun/grocery-selling gas station"--co-wrote the project from an idea Krasinski developed with his Away We Go writer Dave Eggers, and, in an effort to keep up with the Afflecks, the film will mark Damon's directorial debut. Damon and Krasinski will also co-star in the film, with Jason Bourne playing "a salesman who arrives in a small town only to have his whole life called into question," probably when he realizes that small town travelling salesman is no longe an actual profession. Variety notes that this is not Father Daughter Time, the project Damon had been discussing as a possible directing debut back in May. This is something new that one can only assume was agreed upon at one of the lavish, clandestine orgies George Clooney hosts for everyone he's ever been billed with. It's the only explanation.
