LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - Ben Affleck and Matt Damon are stirring up some good will over at Warner Bros.
The actors, longtime friends who won the original screenplay Oscar for “Good Will Hunting” in 1997, are within days of closing a first-look producing deal at the studio. Details are yet unknown on the new company’s name or the length of the agreement.
Damon is currently in theaters with Warner Bros.’ “Invictus,” for which he received an Oscar nomination. Affleck co-wrote, directed and stars in the crime thriller, “The Town,” which WB is releasing in September.
The two actors were previously partners in LivePlanet, which had a deal at Disney until 2007. LivePlanet was behind the duo’s “Project Greenlight” features “Stolen Summer,” “The Battle of Shaker Heights” and “Feast,” as well as Affleck’s writing-directing debut, “Gone Baby Gone.”
