In one snap, Jodie pulled a face at the camera as she sat in front of a large plate of food in a kitchen area where she was dressed in a dark grey T-shirt and matching tracksuit bottoms.

Alongside the post, she wrote: ‘Such mixed emotions…. Ecstatic to have finished this movie given the circumstances, yet beyond sad to say goodbye to the most wonderful people. 

‘Many of them not pictured here but these 3 were trouble, the best kind! Thank you so much to the entire cast and crew. THE LAST DUEL ❤️’. 

Adapted from Eric Jager’s book of the same name, The Last Duel follows the true story of Jean de Carrouges (Damon), a 14th century knight who embarks on a fight to the death with former friend Jacques Le Gris (Adam Driver) after accusing him of raping his wife.

Jodie plays Marguerite de Carrouges, the woman at the centre of the fight in the Ridley Scott-directed epic.

The Last Duel marks the first return of Damon’s writing partnership with Ben Affleck since their award-winning script for Good Will Hunting.

Matt co-wrote the screenplay alongside Nicole Holofcener and his longstanding writing partner Ben, the latter is also starring in the film, although he wasn’t seen on set.

Originally, Matt and Ben were set to play the two leading roles in the film, but they ran into scheduling conflicts because of Ben’s film Deep Water, so he is now set to play King Charles VI, while Adam Driver was cast to take over the role of Le Gris.

Filming began on the movie in February in France but the set was shut down in March due to the pandemic and travel restrictions in Europe.

Matt was at the film’s next location in Ireland when lockdown began and amid the travel ban ended up isolating in the seaside resort of Dalkey, an affluent suburb of Dublin with his wife and four children for a few weeks.

The Last Duel had a scheduled released date of December 2020 but it has now been pushed back to October 15, 2021.
