Warner Bros. Pictures has signed Matt Damon to star in Hereafter, the upcoming supernatural thriller for director Clint Eastwood. Peter Morgan (Frost/Nixon) wrote the script. Damon is already in another Eastwood production, co-starring alongside Morgan Freeman, in Clint's upcoming Nelson Mandela biopic, Invictus.
"Hereafter" will be produced by Clint, Kathleen Kennedy and Robert Lorenz while Steven Spielberg, Frank Marshall, Morgan and Tim Moore are executive producing. The project is set to begin lensing later this fall.
Plot Concept: While the plot concept is being kept under wraps for now, the studio is describing the supernatural feature as a thriller in the vein of The Sixth Sense.
