"I was trying to put together an RFK movie and running into a brick wall. It seemed like it should be an easier pitch," says Damon, still nursing the wound. "It's really hard to find a way to put these things together because the business is so different."
"I read the script and I thought it was a crowd-pleasing movie in all the right ways - like a movie that people would want to go see," said Damon. "That's what we made. It's just a great underdog story."
