Matt Damon To Make Directorial Debut With ‘Father Daughter Time?’

Matt DamonWarner Bros. has bought the spec script Father Daughter Time: A Tale of Armed Robbery And Eskimo Kisses from writer Matthew Aldrich. Matt Damon is attached to star as a man on the run from the law with his daughter. Who also happens to be his accomplice. But the interesting part is that Damon may make the project his directorial debut. Apparently Damon’s Oscar (which most people tend to forget he and Ben Affleck won for writing Good Will Hunting) was a key selling point since as a writer he would be more likely to stick to Aldrich’s vision. I’m actually all for it. Damon’s a great actor and him with a daughter breaking the law? Super awwwwww. As for him as a director? The dude’s been in the game for a long time and has worked with some of the best filmmaker’s of all time in a variety of different genres. I bet he can handle it.
