Star sightings in Vancouver are no big deal, but it is when Matt Damon shows up with a buzzed head! The star has completely shaved his head down to the cue ball and goes for a stroll in downtown Vancouver. He’s in the BC metropolis filming Elysium, an original sci-fi movie written and directed by Neill Blomkamp (District 9). Also set to star in the film is Jodie Foster, William Fichtner, Alice Braga, and Diego Luna.
Elysium is a sci-fi/allegory film set 150 years in the future on another planet. And it looks like Damon will be spending much of the summer in Vancouver filming the alien movie — from July 25th to September 27th to be exact. So Vancouver, if you manage to snap any cast sightings, be sure to send them my way and I’ll post them on the The Scribe’s Desk!
Elysium is set to be released March 1st, 2013.
