After 15 years apart, one of Hollywood’s most lucrative couples is reuniting for a second venture together. No, it’s not Ryan Gosling and Rachel Mcadams. And no, it’s not Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston. I’m talking about Matt Damon and Ben Affleck. And no, they’re not getting married. They’re making another movie together!
The actors, who have been best friends since childhood and colleagues since their first joint project, Good Will Hunting, have been spotted in Santa Monica at what appeared to be a preliminary business meeting. It is reported that Affleck and Damon are indeed teaming up together for a second movie due out sometime next year. The film will be based on the life of Whitey Bulger, a Boston Mafia man who was recently arrested after years on the run, in Santa Monica, CA. It is set to be directed by Affleck, and will star Damon, along with Casey Affleck, Ben’s brother. No word yet about any more details on the project, but just from those tidbits of info, it already sounds like lightning will strike again!
After gathering in a small building in Santa Monica yesterday, the pair parted ways looking very happy– guess the meeting went well! Although, this was the first business meeting for the actors in a while, they are in no way missing each other. Despite both of their busy schedules, (Affleck has been busy promoting his newest film that he directed and starred in, Argo, and Damon has been in Canada filming his latest movie, Elysium, not to mention that both men have wives and children) the duo always manages to spend time together. Just last week Damon was spotted at a screening of Argo with Affleck, and will be moving to the same Pacific Palasides neighborhood that Affleck lives in with his wife Jennifer Garner and their 3 daughters.
If their latest project is to compare to their 1997, 9 Academy Award nominated, box office success, then let the meetings continue! This can only be good things for the movie watchers of the world. We’ll just have to wait and see!
