Ben Affleck and Matt Damon Bring Project Greenlight Back to HBO

1 May 2014 11:30 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Do you remember the HBO series Project Greenlight? It was one of the only reality TV shows that I really enjoyed watching because about something that I was actually passionate about. The show was launched in 2001 and was executive produced and judged by Ben Affleck and Matt Damon. I'm happy to say that they are bringing it back! 

The show allowed directors and screenwriters to send their work in to producers in hopes of being chosen to make a feature length movie. Producers would take the best from each category and then pair them together to work on the film production.

The series spawned three feature length movies and launched the careers of Patrick Melton and Marcus Dunstan, who wrote The Collector and some of the Saw films. Horror director John Gulager (Feast, Piranha 3Dd) also got his start on the show. One of the films even featured a young Shia Labeouf and Amy Smart. »
