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.

Paul Giamatti will be next seen as the tyrant King John in "Ironclad," a medieval-era action flick. Jonathan English ("Minotaur") will be directing from a script he co-wrote with Erick Kastel.
James Purefoy co-stars as a member of the formidable Knights Templar who defends Rochester Castle against the tyrannical King John and his army in 13th century England.
Giamatti as a villain? I'm so there!
Production begins next month in Wales.

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.
