First Look: Matt Damon in Clint Eastwood's Human Factor
Even at 78, filmmaker Clint Eastwood is still going strong, with Gran Torino still playing in theaters and production already started on his next feature. TheBadandUgly.com has some new shots of Matt Damon in The Human Factor, the newest project directed by Clint Eastwood about the 1995 Rugby World Cup. Damon plays rugby star Francois Pienaar, who as captain of the all-white South African rugby team led them to a victory at the world cup and gave the country's whites and blacks a common cause to rally around as they healed from years of apartheid. A few shots of Damon and company practicing can be seen below.

The script for The Human Factor was written by Anthony Peckham (The Assassin, Don't Say a Word, upcoming Sherlock Holmes) and is based on John Carlin's book titled "Playing the Enemy: Nelson Mandela and the Game That Made a Nation". In addition to Damon, Morgan Freeman stars as Nelson Mandela in the film, which is being produced by Freeman, Eastwood, Robert Lorenz, Lori McCreary and Mace Neufeld. Warner Brothers will be bring The Human Factor to theaters later this year. Damon looks great and I can't wait to see more. This definitely will be a production we'll be following so stay tuned for updates.
