Director Tom McCarthy of films like Win Win and The Station Agent is prepping a movie about the sex scandals in the Catholic Church (if you have no idea what I'm talking about, bless you). And he wants Matt Damon to star in it.

The as yet untitled movie is said to be an All The President's Men style docu-thriller about the Catholic Church's coverup of sex abuses in Boston, as uncovered by a reporting team at the Boston Globe.

Damon, who is of course one of Boston's most famous celebrity escapees, hasn't read the script yet, but producers seem to be confident that they can entice him into taking the part of reporter Mike Rezendes in the sure-to-be controversial project.
