The movie, based on the best-selling novel of the same name by bestselling author Cormac McCarthy, stars Matt Damon as the titular character.
In a trailer released earlier this month, Damon revealed he was “very excited” about the project.
He told the audience: “We have a couple of things going on in the film that I am very excited about and I am not going to reveal them until we start shooting.”
“It’s about the idea of having a kid, it’s about a boy’s father who has to deal with the loss of his son, and how that affects him,” Damon said.
“It’s really important to me, and I think that the whole thing is very important to the story, and what it is about.”
“The real thing about being a father is not having a son, it is having a wife and a husband who are also father figures, and you are trying to figure out who they are and how they can make the right choices for you and for your family.”
The trailer shows Damon playing a father figure to a boy in his early teens who is obsessed with the author’s new novel.
“When the book came out, I couldn’t believe that a lot of my friends had read it,” Damon told the crowd.
“So I got the book and I went to my daughter, and she was so excited to read it, she’s a huge Cormac fan, and so she had this book and she’s reading it right now.”
She’s like, ‘Dad, you’re really good at this!’
“Damon then reveals the protagonist’s name and tells the crowd he is “very, very excited” to meet him.
The film will be released in November 2019 and will feature a cast that includes Emma Watson, Michael Shannon, and Samuel L. Jackson.
Damon has also signed on as a producer for the film.
