During the summer of 2010 Eddie starred in a short film directed by Paul Dano titled Franklin and Matilda. It`s a black and white love story made as homage to Francois Truffault. “I wrote the film after watching Antoine et Collette, The Truffaut short,” said Paul. “I wanted to shoot something in NYC in black and white. I’ve never had the chance to act in something black and white,“ he said. "So I had to direct something instead.”
The film was shot in Brooklyn where Paul Dano lives with his girlfriend, Zoe Kazan, who plays female lead in the piece.
Nobody knows when this film will be completed and shown (if at all). In January 2012, Paul was still editing it.
