Rosemarie DeWitt Joins Matt Damon in Gus Van Sant’s PROMISED LAND

     March 9, 2012


The previously untitled project written by Matt Damon, John Krasinski and Dave Eggers that was set to be Damon’s directorial debut now has a female lead. Deadline reports that Rosemarie DeWitt (Mad Men) will star in Promised Land. The Capraesque film pits Damon and Krasinski as rival corporate executives, with Damon’s character arriving in a small town only to have his whole life called into question. The supremely talented actor was poised to make the film his directorial debut, but was forced to scale back to only a starring role when schedule conflicts prevented him from devoting a considerable amount of time to pre-production work. Damon’s Good Will Hunting director Gus Van Sant promptly signed on to helm Promised Land, and production is now poised to begin next month.

DeWitt is probably best known for her multi-season arc on AMC’s Mad Men (she’s one of the first people we met in the pilot), but she’s poised to break big very soon. She had a impressive turns in United States of Tara and Ben Affleck’s The Company Men, and she stars in this summer’s comedy Neighborhood Watch alongside Ben Stiller, Vince Vaughn and Jonah Hill.
