Matt Damon joins Interstellar and looks set to make directorial debut

The Bourne Ultimatum

Story by Jack Foley

MATT Damon is set to sign up for a supporting role in Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar and is in early talks to make his directorial debut with A Foreigner.

For Interstellar, Damon would line up alongside an ensemble that already boasts Matthew McConaughey, Anne Hathaway and Jessica Chastain in its locker.

Although plot details remain sketchy, the film reportedly revolves around time travel, alternate dimensions and a group of explorers traveling through a wormhole.

Production is currently underway.

Damon’s involvement as director of A Foreigner, meanwhile, is still some way off, according to Variety. But the actor is interested and has been looking for the right material to make his directorial debut for some time now.

He almost stepped behind the camera for Promised Land earlier this year.

Penned by Argo scriptwriter Chris Terrio and based on the 2011 article A Murder Foretold by David Grann, A Foreigner would tell the true story of a murdered Guatemalan man who has videos of his killers distributed after his death in order to expose the corruption that led to the death of many others.
