Prestwick House Title to Appear in New Clint Eastwood Film Starring Matt Damon
This morning, Warner Brothers Studios sent a fax to our CEO, Jason Scott, asking permission to use one of our titles as a prop.
The Clint Eastwood film is called Hereafter and stars Matt Damon. Plot details are not being discussed by the studio, but according to IMDB, "Hereafter, penned by Peter Morgan, tells the story of three people — a blue-collar American, a French journalist and a London school boy — who are touched by death in different ways. Hereafter is produced by Eastwood, Kathleen Kennedy and Robert Lorenz. Steven Spielberg, Frank Marshall, Peter Morgan and Tim Moore are the exec producers." It has been likened to The Sixth Sense by critics.
The book they are requesting to use is the Prestwick House Literary Touchstone edition of The Call of the Wild by Jack London. No word as to what the book would be used for, but we are thrilled at the prospect of seeing the artwork of Prestwick House Art Director, Larry Knox, on the big screen!
