Yes!!! Matt Damon & Ben Affleck are finally returning with the sequel you've always wanted!!!
No, not Good Will Hunting 2: Good Will Stops Hunting & Joins PETA , the other sequel you've always wanted: Project Greenlight!!!
For those of you too young to remember, Project Greenlight was NOT a TV show about a small town near Muncie, Indiana that votes to install its very first traffic light, it was an HBO docu-series that hopes to help fledgling filmmakers make their first marvelous movie!
Matt and Ben, who broke into the biz with the aforementioned indie flick of their own, are all about helping out the underdogs!
They served as producers back when the show was first on the air in 2003 and they're excited to be doing it again!
In a statement, Ben bellowed:
"Project Greenlight was ahead of its time… Now that technology has caught up to the concept, we thought it was a perfect time to bring it back. A whole new generation of filmmakers has grown up sharing everything, and the next big director could be just an upload away. It is really great having Project Greenlight back at HBO."
We're excited, too!
The show really helped several interesting films get made!
Remember The Battle of Shaker Heights? Shia LaBeouf was so cute in that!
We're not sure when the show is returning to TV, but you can bet your baloney sandwiches we'll be setting our DVRs!!!
