That Matt Damon/John Krasinski screenplay that the entertainment world has been talking about looks to be finally getting off the ground. According to Deadline, Focus Features and Participant Media are getting distribution duties for the project that now goes under the name Promised Land. Damon’s Good Will Hunting director Gus Van Sant will be helming the effort which is fairly interesting as the gig was originally sold to Warner Bros. as the actor’s directorial debut.
