Hollywood veteran Matt Damon was due to appear in the new movie Manchester by the Sea but, due to scheduling conflicts, had to pass on the movie, giving the lead role to good friend Casey Affleck. However, Matt did remain involved in the project as a producer and he has now admitted that he is very proud of the project.
 
 
Damon was doing a question and answer session, when he explained, "The idea was for me to direct this movie, and I think John (Krasinski) was going to be in it, and then I think I was going to be in it. Once I read a very, very rough draft — it was about 4,000 pages — I just begged Kenny, I said you have to direct it. He eventually saw the wisdom. Then I was going to be in it, Kenny (Lonergan) was going to direct me in it, and in a bizarre and typical kind of fit of generosity, I gave it to Casey. It’s one of the best roles I’ve ever seen. Basically, what happened - I had a full slate."
 
He added, "I wouldn’t be able to do this movie until next year. They could go last year with Casey. I didn’t want to get in the way of a great movie getting made. I already said to Kenny, I wouldn’t give this role up to anybody but Casey Affleck, and Casey instantly took the role. I never made it through this script without crying, and I never made it through any iteration of any cut of this movie without crying. It’s absolutely devastating. It’s one of the most beautiful things I’ve ever come across. I wish I was in it, but I’m happy to just be attached to it."
 
 
For those of you who want to know more about the movie, Manchester by the Sea has been officially described as "An uncle is forced to take care of his teenage nephew after the boy's father dies." Just that one sentence on its own shows how this film is going to be an emotional rollercoaster. We cannot wait to see this film for ourselves.
 
As well as starring Casey Affleck in the lead role, the cast of Manchester by the Sea also includes Gretchen Mol, Kyle Chandler, and Michelle Williams, to name just a few. Manchester by the Sea is directed by Kenneth Lonergan, who also penned the screenplay for the movie, which premiered at the Sundance Film Festival last week.
