Clint Eastwood is getting back behind the camera and he has already got a great head start on an ensemble cast. With Morgan Freeman already onboard Human Factor, the cast just doubled with Matt Damon.

Matt Damon for Human Factor

Written by Anthony Peckham, Human Factor is the adaptation of John Carlin's book "The Human Factor: Nelson Mandela and the Game that Changed the World."

Damon will play rugby star Francois Pienaar, who created, with Nelson Mandela, an event that gave whites and blacks in South Africa a common cause to rally around as the country was trying to heal from the wounds of apartheid.

Mandela, freed from 27 years in prison and elected president, decided to get behind South Africa's Springboks team when the country was selected as host country for the 1985 Rugby World Cup. The Springboks had previously been banned from international competition because of the country's apartheid practices.

Damon recently wrapped the untitled Paul Greengrass-directed Universal drama based on "Imperial Life in Emerald City. He's currently in front of the camera for Steven Soderbergh's The Informant.
