Tot de la Deadline Hollywood aflam ca Matt Damon e interesat sa joace rolul senatorului american Robert F. Kennedy in biografia regizata de Gary Ross (Seabiscuit, Pleasantville) dupa un scenariu scris de Steven Knight (Eastern Promises).
Odata ce Damon a fost anuntat ca va fi prezent in film, proiectul nu va demara pana acesta nu va citi scenariul care, in mare, va fi bazat pe biografia scrisa de Evan Thomas in 2002 numita His Life.
Filmul va fi centrat asupra transformarii lui RFK din omul din umbra a fratelui sau pana ce acesta ajunge presedinte. Din pacate conducerea s-a si viata au fost intrerupte in 1968 cand acesta a fost asasinat, eveniment care a fost transformat intr-un film, de catre Emilio Estevez, si s-a numit Bobby.
Matt Damon looks to be lining up another role which will have him playing an even bigger real-life persona as Deadline Hollywood reports he just closed a deal to star as the late U.S. senator and civil rights activist Robert F. Kennedy in a new biopic that will be directed by Gary Ross (Seabiscuit, Pleasantville) from a script by Steven Knight (Eastern Promises). Although Damon is attached, the project won’t get off the ground until he sees the script, which will largely be based on Evan Thomas’ biography His Life in 2002.
The film will focus on RFK’s rise from behind the shadow of his older brother, President John F. Kennedy, as he went on to become an amazing political figure without relying on the legacy of the rest of his family. Sadly, his career and life were cut short when he was assassinated in 1968, an event which was depicted in Emilio Estevez’s ensemble film Bobby.
