Matt Damon Hands Over Directing Role To Gus Van Sant

| Filed under: Matt DamonFilm FlickersJohn Krasinski


If he can't do it himself, he might as well give it to one of the best.

Matt Damon was all set to direct the screenplay he wrote with John Krasinski, but time commitments got in the way, he handed over the reigns to his pal Gus Van Sant.

And Van Sant knows a thing or two about directing a Matt Damon screenplay. He also directed the Oscar winning film Good Will Hunting.

The Capraesque drama stars Damon and Krasinski, who play rival corporate executives and will star production in April.

With such three big talented names, we are super stoked for this movie. Good call on bringing Van Sant in. Could this be a contender for Oscars 2013??

    'Jim' from 'the Office' as a corporate executive? Who the hell is gonna buy into that? Dude cant even aoff manager of Dunder-Mifflin Scranton branch hahaha. Rainn Wilson on the other hand could play a rival executive to Matt Damon!
