Default The Last Duel (by Ridley Scott, with Matt Damon and Ben Affleck)


Quote:
Hereís a major movie that is coming together quickly. Iím hearing that Ridley Scott is going to next direct 'The Last Duel', a revenge story based on a novel by Eric Jager. The plan is for Matt Damon and Ben Affleck to star in the film. The script is almost done, written by Damon, Affleck and Nicole Holofcener. This is happening quickly and would be the first collaboration on a script between Damon and Affleck to get made since their Oscar-winning work on 'Good Will Hunting'.

Itís a revenge story of two best friends. Damon and Affleck will play them. The main characters are the Norman knight Jean de Carrouges and the squire Jacques Le Gris. They were friends. One goes to war and returns to accuse Le Gris of raping his wife Margerite de Carrouges. No one will believe the woman, and the soldier appeals to the king of France to undo a decision handed down by Count Pierre díAnencon, which favored Le Gris. The decision handed down is that the two men fight a duel to the death. The one left alive would be declared the winner as a sign of Godís will. And if Jean de Carrouges loses, his wife will be burned at the stake for punishment for her false accusation. [SOURCE]

Another dark, violent period piece by Ridley Scott, who happens to be my favorite filmmaker?

Yeah, you can bet I'm hyperventilating right now.

A billion times more interesting than The ****ing Merlin Saga.

Honestly I was super intrigued by the team up, then mildly disappointed by the time period and setting (just personal preference), but then pulled right back in by the story details. Man I hope this moves forward soon.

Very intrigued by the parties involved. On a side note, are Damon and Affleck supposed to be playing French characters? Ummm, that could be interesting. What part of France are you guys from, I don't recognize your accent? Boston, how do ya like dem apples.

That's a question you don't ask because it's absurd. *Looks at del Toro*

Wow, very random and exciting!

Very cool to see Nicole Holofcener's name there too.

Some people are (understandably) skeptical that Scott will actually make this as he has his name attached to like dozens of potential directing gigs at any given time, but this seems to be a really hot project in Hollywood. From Deadline:

Quote:
If Disney doesn’t step up, I’m told every studio in town is waiting in the wings for this one. Scott would push back Merlin, the formative pic on the wizard at Disney.

This is getting around quickly because Damon was photographed by Yahoo! carrying a script. Now you know what it’s all about. There truly are no secrets anymore.

I have to agree, I really like both actors, but not sure they will fit right into a period film.
