Opening in limited release later this month in order to qualify for awards consideration, PROMISED LAND is the first collaborative effort by new producing and writing partners MATT DAMON and JOHN KRASINSKI. Part cautionary tale and part social commentary, the film is directed by GUS VAN SANT and stars DAMON and KRASINSKI as well as FRANCIS McDORMAND, SCOOT McNAIRY, HAL HOLBROOK, ROSEMARIE DeWITT and LUCAS BLACK.
This is a really impressive beginning for the partnership of DAMON and KRASINSKI, who tell us there are more projects in the pipeline. During our interview last weekend, Academy Award-winner DAMON talked about how he and KRASINSKI got together. (CLICK ON THE MEDIA BAR FOR AUDIO)
