Kennedy in Celluloid

Here at N4N, we're not above an occasional spot of celebrity news. So here's a tidbit. Patrick J. Kennedy may be set to retire, but the family legacy will not disappear anytime soon. Deadline.com has the scoop on an RFK biopic in the works that would star Matt Damon.

In this tough marketplace, if you want to make another movie about a complex historical figure like Robert F Kennedy, you'd better bring to the table an actor with chops and bankability to excite a financier. Matt Damon does both those things. I've just heard that a deal closed at New Regency for an RFK film that has Damon attached, with Gary Ross directing and Steven Knight scripting. Damon will wait to see the script before we know whether or not the project will really happen. The film will be based on the Evan Thomas biography His Life, which Landscape Entertainment’s Bob Cooper optioned and will produce with Ross and his Larger Than Life partner Alison Thomas.
