What will the film be about? Who knows?! But anyone who gets three governments to fight over him must be doing something right. (The New York Observer)

Matt Damon won’t be directing anytime soon, but he and John Krasinski will be facing off in that same project, now helmed by indie auteur Gus Van Sant. The movie, Promised Land, will be coming out through Focus Features. (Vulture)

Crushing on Revenge starlet Emily VanCamp? You’re out of luck—she’s apparently now dating her show co-star Josh Bowman. (Us Weekly)
