Hereafter trailer

Hereafter October 22

Supernatural thriller directed by Clint Eastwood, written by Oscar winner Peter Morgan ( The Queen, Frost/Nixon ) and starring Matt Damon, Bryce Dallas Howard, Cecile de France, Jay Mohr, Richard Kind and Derek Jacobi.

Described the script as a supernatural thriller "in the vein of The Sixth Sense."

Writer Peter Morgan told The Hollywood Reporter, "It's quite spiritual material, and quite romantic, too. It's the sort of piece that's not easy to describe and in the hands of different filmmakers could end up as wildly different films. Quite unlike some of my other material, which I think there were only certain ways that you could shoot it."

Director Clint Eastwood told, "It's a story that's actually three stories of people who have had traumatic experiences in their life [...] and how these stories converge towards one another. It ends up with all three stories culminating in one big sequence." He compared the structure to French films "where the stories kind of converge together, and destiny drives each person towards the other".

The tone of the film has been described by Eastwood as a chick flick, "But one that men will like too. Or at least one that won't make them want to stick a Swiss Army Knife in their leg." Matt Damon described it as Eastwood's "French film ".

Hereafter has a screening at the Toronto Film Festival this weekend.

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 !
