Is Matt Damon ready to go undercover? (Or to take Brad Pitt's leftovers?) Today's Daily Variety says "The Talented Mr. Ripley" star has been offered the lead in the spy thriller, "The Bourne Identity," based on the Robert Ludlum novel of the same name. Pitt passed on the project on Wednesday.
WHAT A GREAT IDEA! Martin Lawrence, late of "Big Momma's House," is eyeing "Black Knight," a comedy about a lowly food-service worker who time travels back to the Middle Ages. We do not think Variety is making this up.
