Ben Affleck and Matt Damon haven’t had an original idea in the 13 years since “Project Greenlight” — they even admit as much in a promo for the new season of the HBO unscripted series, which is returning to the network a decade after it went off the air.
This time, the show is searching for a first-time director. “The winning candidate will lead a Hollywood-vetted script from pre-production to casting through principal photography and on to post-production,” Affleck says in a promo for the new season.
Affleck, Damon and a bunch of great directors will mentor the new contestants. Think you’ve got what it takes? Submit your three-minute short films at projectgreenlight.com. Check out the promo below.
