(Newser) – If shelling out $10 to see a biopic about Robert F. Kennedy doesn’t thoroughly excite you, perhaps this will change your mind: RFK will be played by none other than Matt Damon. Well, make that might be played. Deadline reports the deal is done and Damon is attached—but the actor wants to see the script before confirming the project is a go.

The film, based on Evan Thomas’ biography His Life, will focus on RFK’s journey from the younger brother overshadowed by John F. Kennedy to a national leader before he was assassinated.
