Matt Damon Could Play Lawman Eliot Ness in 'Torso'
The producer tells IESB.com "(Matt's) sort of young enough and he has that boyish charm that would work. I mean if you are sort of talking big, sort of well-known guys, a guy like (Leonardo) DiCaprio sort of fits that bill too - young enough, flamboyant enough. It's a young man's role. We need to bring that to people's attention how young this guy was."
The film is based on a relatively unknown story, which centers around Ness after he moved to Cleveland, Ohio, to become the city's public safety officer, and human torsos began appearing around town with notes from a serial killer challenging the lawman to catch him.
Torso was optioned by McFarlane after a comic company he co-owns published the original graphic novel, which featured the story.
