Four movies in 2010 for Matt Damon

Actor Matt Damon looks like he will be pulling a Nicolas Cage this year, as the Boston native is churning out movie after movie and will have four movies alone to be released in the year 2010.

First coming wil be the Iraq themed Green Zone on March 12th, then he will follow that up with a film based from a Philip Dick short story called The Adjustment Bureau opposite Emily Blunt. Then this winter, most likely December, will see Damon reuniting with Clint Eastwood once again, in the psychological thriller Hereafter with Bryce Dallas Howard. Finally the fourth film will be the Coen brother's re-imaging of True Grit, with Jeff Bridges, Josh Brolin, Barry Pepper and newcomer Hailee Steinfeld due on Christmas day.

I hope for his sake and his status as an A lister, that he doesn't get caught in that quagmire, where he feels he has to be filming a movie at all times, because it's be proven that way of thinking has hurt the career of some actor's, when accepting every script that comes their way.

So far the film's on Damon's list this year look promising.

Damon is a busy dude ! I liked what you wrote about other actors that just take any script it seems like to keep working ( were you hinting at DeNiro and Cage ? )

I would not like to see Damon doing poor material just for the pay check like the two above mentioned.

Started to really pay attention to film ( movies ) what was going on in front of the camera, but more interestingly, behind it as well at about as far back as age 10. Motion pictures ( when good ) are a fascinating medium. All the work and prep that goes into filmmaking. It's an amazing process !
