Plans for Matt Damon's newest blockbuster movie have been suspended because of the global economic downturn. The Bourne Identity star was scheduled to appear in Torso, a new movie about U.S. lawmaker Eliot Ness, which was to be directed by The Curious Case Of Benjamin Button filmmaker David Fincher.
But Paramount Pictures has reportedly put the movie on hold indefinitely over fears its big budget would be too costly in the current financial climate.
A source tells Britain's Daily Express, "Paramount are still keen to make Torso but don't want it to be an expensive risk so are looking at ways to bring it in for less money. If they can't make their sums work, other Hollywood studios may well step in."
