Recession bites Matt Damon starrer TorsoJanuary 27th, 2009 - 4:45 pm ICT by ANI
Washington, Jan 27 (ANI): Matt Damon’’s newest blockbuster has been put on hold indefinitely because of the global economic downturn, according to reports.
The Bourne Identity star was supposed to star in Torso, a new movie about U.S. lawmaker Eliot Ness.
However, Paramount Pictures has reportedly suspended the film over fears its big budget would be too costly in the current financial climate, reports Contactmusic.
The flick was to be directed by The Curious Case Of Benjamin Button filmmaker David Fincher.
A source tells Britain’’s Daily Express, “Paramount are still keen to make Torso but don”t want it to be an expensive risk so are looking at ways to bring it in for less money.
If they can”t make their sums work, other Hollywood studios may well step in.” (ANI)
