    TULSA, Okla. - Academy Award-winner Matt Damon is set to play an Oklahoma man in a new film called “Stillwater,” according to multiple reports.

    Deadline reports Tom McCarthy is set to direct. His last feature, “Spotlight,” won Best Picture at the Oscars in 2015 and secured McCarthy a trophy for Best Original Screenplay and nomination for Best Director.

    According to Variety, Damon will play an Oklahoma oil worker “who travels to Marseille to visit his estranged daughter who is in prison for a murder she claims she did not commit.”

    Neither report indicated if the movie might shoot in Oklahoma or when production is set to begin.
