For almost a year now Matt Damon has been keen to become a director. After flirting with a couple projects, in October he set up his directorial debut at Warner, with an untitled drama he co-wrote with The Office’s John Krasinski, based on a concept he developed with Dave Eggers.
However, now Vulture reports that Damon is stepping away from this project as a director, but perhaps oddly, it appears he’s still set to star in the film. Story details have been slim, but the screenplay revolves around a salesman who moves to a small town, only to be met with disdain from the locals.
It’s not known exactly why Matt left the director’s seat, although there are rumours that he has issues with the script (although if that’s true, it seem odd he’s still willing to star in the movie). It’s not certain though whether Warner will go ahead with the $12 million movie is Matt drops out entirely.
