DAMON TO FINALLY CLIMB GREAT WALL

Matt Damon plans to scale the Great Wall with Zhang Yimou.

According to Deadline, Damon, 43, is keen to join Zhang's epic The Great Wall, which reveals the mystery behind why the Great Wall was built and the secrets hidden beneath its stones.

Damon missed out on the chance to work with the acclaimed Chinese director in the 2011 Flowers Of War due to scheduling conflicts. The role eventually went to Christian Bale.
