Matt Damon is going all out this weekend.
The actor and his wife of eight years, Luciana, plan to renew their wedding vows this weekend in the Caribbean and they have rented out the entire Sugar Beach resort on the isle of Saint Lucia to the tune of $600,000, E! News exclusively confirms.
A caravan of SUVs was seen ferrying people from a private airfield to the hotel, where, according to local authorities, there is an increased security presence.
The guest list includes best Damon bud Ben Affleck and his wife, Jennifer Garner, and there are whisperings that George Clooney, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie possible received invites as well (though Brad's due at the MTV Movie Awards on Sunday, so he may have had to regretfully decline).
A private plane linked to Catherine Zeta-Jones, whose hubby Michael Douglas stars with Damon in the upcoming HBO film Behind the Candelabra, has arrived on the island. Stanley Tucci, whose sister-in-law is close Damon pal Emily Blunt, is also in the area.
Reports that the local beach has been closed due to the festivities are not true, Officer Defreitas of the St. Lucia Police Station in Soufriere tells E! News. But he says, "the hotel is what is closed down" for an event that will continue through midday Sunday.
We're told the entire party is booked under the name "Mr. Naff."
"In a case like with Matt Damon, you will see that even our Marine Police gets involved to ensure that no unauthorized boats can approach the resort beach," Karolin Troubetzkoy, president of the Saint Lucia Hotel and Tourism Association and owner with her husband of Jade Mountain, another luxury resort near Sugar Beach.
"Naturally in this day and age you never know who has a cell phone and who make take unauthorized photographs but I would imagine the resorts would have very strict rules in place. It will be a matter of great pride to the St. Lucian staff here to look after the Matt Damon renewal-of-vows party. Considering that pretty much everyone has a friend or relative working in the various resorts, it is amazing how very little gets out."
Damon's rep has remained mum regarding the imminent retying of the knot.
