Matt Damon and Ben Affleck Reunion – A Cinematic Possibility?

Elysium (Columbia Pictures, CR: Kimberley French)There are fewer actors at the top of the game these days than Matt Damon and Ben Affleck. Years ago the pair won Oscars for their Good Will Hunting screenplay, and now their collaboration should come full circle with the formation of their production company Pearl Street Films.

During a recent interview, Matt Damon talked about temporarily moving to Los Angeles with his family (they previously lived in New York), and one of the reasons for the change of scenery was working with his old friend Affleck.

“We’ve got a few things we’ve been talking about,” said Damon, whose new film Elysium opens stateside August 9. “That was another reason to move out here, was our company. When he won Best Picture, finally I was like, ‘You know we have to really get some offices.’ (laughs) So we rented some offices, and because we’re in a good position…because we both write. He directs. I want to direct. We both produce, and we both act, we should be able to aggregate a lot of good material and if we want to get serious about doing that we have to really hang out our shingle and do it.”

Damon also talked about the genius behind filmmaker Steven Soderbergh, a director he’s worked with on several features, including HBO’s Behind the Candelabra. Click on the media bar to hear how Damon discuss how Soderbergh’s Final Cut editing really helped the production process:
