Matt Damon teaming up with director of 'District 9'?
Is Matt Damon going from the wild west to the far reaches of outer space? It's increasingly possible. Damon, who will soon be seen in the Coen Bros. remake of "True Grit" is in talks to star in Neill Blomkamp's "District 9" follow up, "Elysium."
According to Deadline, financier Media Rights Capital won't take the super secret independently financed project out to studios until a major cast is in place. If Damon comes on board, that could happen as soon as next year.
Damon was most recently seen in "Hereafter" and besides "Grit" appears in "The Adjustment Bureau" with Emily Blunt this March. He also recently completed the all-star ensemble "Contagion" for longtime collaborator Steven Soderbergh.
