Paramount Pictures is teaming up with Ben Affleck and Matt Damon through their Pearl Street Films production company to produce The Shadows, based on a true story set in their hometown of Boston. There is no indication that either actor will star in the film, and it seems they will both just be producing at this time. This news comes just days after Ben Affleck was accused of sexual misconduct, for groping actress Hilarie Burton while she was hosting MTV's Trl back in 2004. The actor later apologized for his actions.
The project comes from writer Chris Bremner, who took his pitch to Paramount, which the studio acquired, and now he will be writing the script. The story will be based on Matthew Pearl's Boston Globe Magazine article "Into the Shadows," which chronicles America's first ever undercover police officers, who were based in Affleck and Damon's hometown of Boston.

There must be a shortage of actual twins in Hollywood, because actors increasingly have been taking on double duty when the role calls for it.
We're going to see it again this month in George Clooney's Suburbicon, which has Julianne Moore playing twin sisters. Suburbicon follows a seemingly normal family whose lives are rocked after a home invasion. Written by the Coen Brothers, this is going to be one wild family "drama". It's also got us thinking about more occasions when one actor took on the role of siblings.
Here are our five favourite times one actor played twins:
It was a pretty bold move for Armie Hammer to have his breakout role as the Winklevoss twins. We were pretty convinced that the »

Matt Damon has joined Ben Affleck in going on the record with remarks in regards to Harvey Weinstien’s history of alleged sexual harassment. The latest report from The New Yorker included 13 more women going the record against Weinstein. Three of the women, including actress Asia Argento, accused Weinstein of rape.
Damon’s name got thrown into the scandal after The Wrap’s Sharon Waxman accused him and Russell Crowe of helping to kill a story about the Weinstein scandal back in 2004 that The New York Times was working on. Waxman said that Fabrizio Lombardo, who ran Miramax’s Italian office, was helping bring women to Weinstein and that Damon and Crowe had called her to vouch in his defense after The New York Times was tipped to his actions.

George Clooney knows Harvey Weinstein better than most. The two men’s careers have been intertwined for decades and, as Clooney will even admit, Weinstein is largely responsible for his success in the industry, giving him an acting breakthrough with “From Dusk Till Dawn” in 1996 and a directorial breakthrough with “Confessions of a Dangerous Mind” in 2002. But not even Clooney will be coming to Weinstein’s defense in light of The New York Times article which revealed decades worth of sexual harassment accusations and coverups.
“It’s indefensible. That’s the only word you can start with,” Clooney said to The Daily Beast in an extensive interview in which he reacts to the Weinstein scandal. “I’ve known Harvey for 20 years…We’ve had dinners, we’ve been on location together, we’ve had arguments. »

In the world of celebrity real estate, where stars are constantly rotating in and out of multi-million-dollar homes, Julianne Moore‘s New York City townhouse is an anomaly.
Not only has the Oscar-winning actress, 56, lived in the stately home in lower Manhattan for 15 years, when she recently decided it was no longer suiting her family’s needs, she chose to renovate it instead of moving up and out.
“For years I dreamed about living in a townhouse in the West Village,” Moore tells Architectural Digest in the magazine’s November cover story. “The first time I walked into this one, »

This October, you can definitely get your scare on at the movies.

When Denis Villeneuve’s much-hyped, long-in-the-making, and already critically beloved “Blade Runner 2049” hits theaters this Friday, it will be joining some unexpected company: a slew of other R-rated features that are already dominating the box office. This past weekend’s big winners may have initially made waves because of the oddly crowded nature of their ticket returns — each of the top three, including horror holdover “It,” the Tom Cruise actioner “American Made,” and comic book sequel “Kingsman: The Secret Circle,” made just over $17M — but its their adult-skewing ratings that tell the more compelling story.
As The Washington Post notes, it’s not just that this past weekend’s box office was dominated by R-rated films, it’s that 2017 as a whole has already played home to a staggering number of R-rated performers, from critical darlings to horror outings and everything in between, with more on the way.

Especially a couple of these cases, this is just the beginning for discussion of them… Here now are the best cinematic bets for the month of October: 10.

The actor and director spoke to The Daily Beast about his new movie Suburbicon, and was asked how he thinks history will remember the 2016 Democratic nominee.
“Hillary, for years and years and years, has been the presumptive nominee, and quite honestly, she was incredibly qualified for the job,” Clooney said. “But being qualified for the job does not necessarily mean you’re the right person to be president….She was »

Although “What Happened,” the title of Hillary Clinton’s book that chronicles her 2016 run for president and her shocking loss to Donald Trump, is not in question form, George Clooney answered it as if it was. “I never saw her elevate her game. I never saw it,” Clooney told The Daily Beast, referring to, yes, “what happened” to Clinton’s candidacy from his perspective. The “Suburbicon” director was one of the many politically outspoken Hollywood Democrats who were avid Clinton supporters and major donors during her campaign. In retrospect, he says that being “incredibly qualified” for the job wasn’t enough. »

Variety is reporting that Matt Damon has signed on to produce and star in Charlatan, a drama which will see him taking on the role of John R. Brinkley, an early 20th century doctor and con man who fooled his patients into believing that he had discovered the cure to impotence.
The film will be scripted by the writing team of Brian Koppelman and David Levien (Ocean’s Thirteen) and is based upon Pope Brock’s bestselling 2008 non-fiction book Charlatan: America’s Most Dangerous Huckster, the Man Who Pursued Him, and the Age of Flimflam. The official description for the book reads as follows:
In 1917, John R. Brinkley–America’s most brazen con man–introduced an outlandish surgical method for restoring fading male virility.
It was all nonsense, but thousands of eager customers quickly made “Dr.” Brinkley one of America’s richest men–and a national celebrity. The great »
