There was great deal of speculation when Matt Damon announced he was considering making his directional debut with a film titled Father Daughter Time: A Tale of Armed Robbery and Eskimo Kisses, based off a spec screenplay by Matthew Aldrich, with John Krasinski in the lead role.
Today though, Variety announced that Damon will make his directional debut and he will be starring along side Krasinski, but not in Father Daughter Time: A Tale of Armed Robbery and Eskimo Kisses, rather it will be another film, which is currently untitled.
Co-written by Damon and Krasinski, it will follow Damon’s character as “a salesman who arrives in a small town only to have his whole life called into question.”
The concept was developed by Krasinski and Dave Eggers (Where the Wild Things Are), and will be produced by Chris Moore.
The film is currently at Warner Bros. who have not green lit the project yet. However, if everything goes according to plan, Damon will begin shooting in the near future with a rumoured $12 million budget.
