Hollywood hunk Matt Damon insists Australian actor Heath Ledger is the future Steven Spielberg.

THE BOURNE SUPREMACY star, 33, says his co-star in the forthcoming BROTHERS GRIMM movie will make a "great director" one day.

Damon says, "I think Heath is going to be a great director. Mark that I said that in 2004.

"If he wanted to do a movie right now and there was a role for me, I'd jump at the chance. I think he's really talented. He's an incredibly imaginative guy and he's really curious.

"He already understands film-making at a very young age and already asks all the right questions."
