Actor Matt Damon, who is expecting his second child with wife Luciana, will portray rugby star Francois Pienaar in Human Factor. The film marks another go of it for successful actor/director tandem Clint Eastwood and Morgan Freeman, who worked together on the sentimental Oscar-winning smash Million Dollar Baby.
Freeman will play anti-apartheid activist and former South African leader Nelson Mandela. The film centers around Piennar and Mandela, who created a rugby event that gave blacks and whites in separatist South Africa something to unite around. The film will be adapated from John Carlin's book The Human Factor: Nelson Mandela and the Game that Changes the World. Shooting begins in South Africa early next year.
