Damon to Play RFK in Ross-Directed Biopic

Matt Damon is attached to play Robert F. Kennedy in a New Regency picture that has Gary Ross directing and Steven Knight scripting.

Deadline.com reports that Damon will wait to see the script before it will be known 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.

Cooper will produce with Ross and his Larger Than Life partner Alison Thomas.

The film, says Deadline, will trace RFK’s transformation from the younger brother in the shadow of President John F. Kennedy to a strong national leader in his own right before he was assassinated in 1968.
