Matt Damon Will See Dead People for Director Clint Eastwood and Executive Producer Steven Spielberg 

The first foray of director Clint Eastwood into the ghost thriller territory for executive producer Steven Spielberg is finally shaping up!

This project first came to light last November (See "Clint Eastwood and Steven Spielberg Talk GHOST!"). Now, Matt Damon is set to star in the film "Hereafter."

The plot is being kept under wraps by Warner Bros. but it's being described as a thriller similar to "The Sixth Sense." Peter Morgan ("The Queen," "Frost/Nixon") wrote the script.

But before "Hereafter," Damon will be seen starring opposite Morgan Freeman in Eastwood's "Invictus," a look at Nelson Mandela's life after the fall of apartheid and how he used the 1995 Rugby World Cup event to unite his countrymen.

Production for "Hereafter" is set to begin this fall.

Director Richard Linklater's Upcoming Obama-Inspired Road Trip Comedy! 

Richard Linklater, the fantastic director who gave us "Dazed and Confused," "Slacker," "Before Sunrise," and "Before Sunset" films among others, is working on a road-trip comedy inspired by President Barack Obama's election victory.

The film is called "Liars (A-E)" from scriptwriter Emma Forrest. Scott Rudin is producing for Miramax.

Rebecca Hall ("Frost/Nixon," "Vicky Cristina Barcelona") is in talks to play a woman who's been dumped by her rocker fiancé on the eve of the president's victorious election.

So what does she do? She takes a road trip with her best friend (played by Kat Dennings) to Obama's inauguration. And along the way, she visits various ex-boyfriends to retrieve lost items.

Sounds intriguing!

"Jennifer's Body" Movie Review -- How Many Kisses Do Megan Fox and Amanda Seyfried Get? 

In 2007, Screenwriter Diablo Cody took the cinema world by storm with her biting, satirical look inside teenage pregnancy in “Juno.” So it's no surprise that all eyes are on her with the much-talked about horror satire “Jennifer's Body” where she also serves as the film's writer and executive producer.

In press notes, Cody is quoted as saying, “So I started thinking about what's scary to me, and I decided that girls are scary!" So Cody, with the help from director Karyn Kusama, tried to make a hybrid comedy-horror flick about teenage girls. What we got is a half-baked film about the horrors of a character's body yet the movie's heart is missing. Read More...
