Stop what you’re doing… Just stop. We’re about to drop some heavy news on you.
The Weinstein Company has recently acquired the rights to the story, first published by Paul Tough in The New York Times Magazine. The film follows the true story of lobsterman John Aldridge, who fell overboard in the Atlantic Ocean in 2013 and kept afloat by hanging onto a pair of rubber boots for 12 hours before being rescued. Sounds like a perfect project for Damleck (Damon + Affleck)… Afflamon? We’ll work on the name later.
Point is, Ben Affleck and Matt Damon have a beautiful bromance going on, akin only to George Clooney and Brad Pitt’s adoration for each other. We are overcome with so many feelings right now; this is pretty much what happened when we first heard the news:
Initial shock at the possibility of a glorious reunion:
Excitement and hyperventilation:
A celebratory dance:
Another celebratory dance (for good measure):
Are you as excited as we are, or are you one of those “normal” people?
