Ben Affleck and Matt Damon Introduce Project Greenlight Season 4

26 June 2014 1:30 PM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Project Greenlight is coming back to HBO for a fourth season, and the cable network has released the first promo. It features Ben Affleck and Matt Damon introducing the new season and what they are looking to do with it. It's also fun to see them joke around about not having any better ideas over the past decade.

Project Greenlight was stared back in 2001, and it was developed as a way to help get first-time filmmakers the budget and promotion needed to make a feature film. The show was on HBO for two seasons where it spawned films such as Stolen Summer and The Battle of Shaker Heights. The show was then moved to Bravo in 2005, and thats where the movie Feast was developed.

I was a big supporter of the show while it was still on TV, and I think it's great that Project Greenlight is back to help more first-time filmmakers. »

Attention Filmmakers: Ben Affleck and Matt Damon Want to Make Your Dreams Come True with 'Project Greenlight'

25 June 2014 10:30 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Ready to be judged by Batman and Jason Bourne? Now's your chance (again). HBO has announced that they're bringing back the talent competition "Project Greenlight," allowing aspiring filmmakers to submit for the chance to make a feature film -- under the watchful eye of producers Ben Affleck, Matt Damon and a crew of reality TV cameras.  A reality show born of the late-90s indie film boom, the first seasons of "Project Greenlight" produced a few underseen features -- "Stolen Summer," "The Battle of Shaker Heights" and "Feast" -- that did not launch any megastar careers (well, except for "Shaker Heights" actor Shia LeBeouf, that is). Of course, that was a pre-YouTube era, when cell phones weren't capable of shooting HD video. How that changes the playing field could be most interesting.  In the amusing and self-deprecating announcement video below, Affleck and Damon admit to not having had any new »

With Damon and Affleck Resurrecting ‘Project Greenlight,’ Let’s See Where Past Winners Are Today

30 April 2014 6:31 PM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

I wonder if any of you are too young to remember Project Greenlight. The competition reality show was a big deal when it began back in 2001 on HBO, the brainchild of pals Ben Affleck and Matt Damon with producer Chris Moore, then known best for American Pie. And Harvey Weinstein was involved through Miramax, which had a stake all the way through distributing whatever movie was made out of the winning script. Project Greenlight would begin each season with the screenplay contest, which fed into a directors contest, which fed into a making-of docu-series where we watched the champion filmmaker complete his feature. After three seasons of what could better be called Project Greenhorn, it seemed as though those features weren’t worth the effort. Actually, most viewers knew after the unsuccessful release of the first, Stolen Summer, that it this idea didn’t work. But now Affleck and Damon, sans »
