Actor Matt Damon has secured a deal to make his directorial debut at Warner Bros. with an untitled drama project. The Office star John Krasinski co-wrote the script with Matt Damon, and will also star.
The story centers on a salesman (Matt Damon) whose life gets upended when he arrives in a small town. It isn't known what role John Krasinski will have, but it is said he came up with the original concept, which he developed with Away We Go author Dave Eggers. Chris Moore will produce.
Back in June, it was believed that Matt Damon's directorial debut would be Father Daughter Time: A Tale of Armed Robbery and Eskimo Kisses, which John Krasinski also signed on for. Matt Damon's cryptic comments at the time, where he indicated John Krasinski will star in his directorial debut, lead many to believe Father Daughter Time: A Tale of Armed Robbery and Eskimo Kisses would be his first movie as a director. Warner Bros. acquired the crime drama Father Daughter Time: A Tale of Armed Robbery and Eskimo Kisses in May, a report which indicated Matt Damon may direct the project.
