“Contagion’s” Matt Damon, 40, is the proud father of four daughters, and when asked by “Extra’s” Jerry Penacoli if he would consider trying again for a boy, Damon replied he was “done,” adding, “We’re closing the shop. That’s a wrap. Our life is full. I want to know our kids’ names.”
The actor commented on his pal Brad Pitt and the Brangelina brood, saying, “I honestly don’t know how they do it. They seem to do it so effortlessly. I’m sure they’re cloning themselves.”
Addressing the latest political rumor of documentarian Michael Moore calling on Damon to run for President, he laughed, “See how desperate he [Moore] is getting?! Seriously, I don’t have any aspirations to go into politics.”
Damon stars alongside Gwyneth Paltrow, Kate Winslet and Jude Law in Steven Soderberg’s thriller, “Contagion.” Damon says the action film, about a deadly outbreak, probably influenced the cast members to “wash our hands more.”
I’ve added some Posters for Contagion. The movie opens September 9th.
“Contagion” follows the rapid progress of a lethal airborne virus that kills within days. As the fast-moving epidemic grows, the worldwide medical community races to find a cure and control the panic that spreads faster than the virus itself. At the same time, ordinary people struggle to survive in a society coming apart.
There are volumes to be written about how “Margaret,” the follow-up drama to Kenneth Lonergan’s well-received “You Can Count on Me,” has been stuck in film-release purgatory since being shot in 2005. We’ll offer some of those details (like how costar Matt Damon once called studio executives imploring them to release the film) in future posts. In the meantime, the news Wednesday is that the movie is finally coming to theaters.
Fox Searchlight said that it will release the film on Sept. 30. The opening will be a limited one, said a spokeswoman, beginning in New York and Los Angeles and widening out from there. It remains to be seen how wide it actually goes, and how much marketing support is behind it.
The movie stars a (much younger) Anna Paquin dealing with the aftermath of an accident she’s witnessed. But the plot details are almost beside the point. The biggest drama may comes with the film itself. Boldface names galore were involved in a post-production tussle over both the content and its release, and whether the resulting movie turns out to be decent or the high-profile train wreck all the delays (and rumors) suggest could be as compelling as anything in the film. More to come in the next few days, but for now, the film world’s longest-held captive has indeed been set free.
