In theaters later this month, PROMISED LAND centers on a turf war between an ambitious natural-gas company exec and a determined environmentalist vying for control over a rural community torn on the issue of fracking. A lot more interesting (and entertaining) than that log-line, the film is co-written, co-produced and co-stars JOHN KRASINSKI and MATT DAMON (who was originally slated to direct the film as well). When it looked as though personal issues were going to prevent DAMON from helming and possibly pull the plug on the project, a hail-Mary play and an airplane phone call saved the day. During our interview last week, the always engaging MATT DAMON shared the story of getting director GUS VAN SANT to step-in and how it all went down.
