Last year, Project Greenlight made a return to TV after being away for 10 years. The show originated on HBO back in 2001, lasted two seasons on the cable network, and then moved over to Bravo for a third season. The revival last year came as a surprise, but with the advances in the technology of filmmaking, the field of competitors vying for the chance to direct their own feature film was far more interesting, making a new season of the show that much more exciting.
However, it turns out the revival of the show wasn’t good enough for HBO as the cable network has decided they won’t be renewing the documentary series for a fifth season. Now Matt Damon and Ben Affleck are looking for a new place to take the show. Get all the details on prospects of Project Greenlight season 5 after the jump. Read More »
When Warner Bros announced their Hall H line-up for San Diego Comic Con International 2016, Justice League was mysteriously absent. So its not shocking that Zack Snyder brought his still-in-production film to San Diego — its more like an expected surprise. They revealed a new piece of Justice League concept art, giving you a better look at the Aquaman and Flash costumes. We also got a sizzle reel, which you can watch below.

We’ve known since even before Batman v Superman opened that Ben Affleck‘s Batman was gearing up for his own solo movie, but as of now details about what exactly that movie will be remain sparse. And naturally, the rumor mill is more than happy to fill that void. The latest totally unconfirmed, take-it-with-a-grain-of-salt report claims Batman’s solo outing will take place in Arkham Asylum. Who knows whether this rumor will turn out to be any truer than all of the other ones, but sure, it’s fun to think about. Read More »
Later this month, we’ll see Matt Damon return to the franchise that made him an action star with Jason Bourne. It’s the fourth installment of the franchise that started back in 2002 with The Bourne Identity, and its existence is a bit of a surprise since both Damon and director Paul Greengrass resisted returning to the Bourne universe for so long. Therefore, it might be hard to get another movie with Damon as Bourne off the ground. But could Damon end up leading another franchise, perhaps as a superhero? A Matt Damon superhero movie is a possibility, but with one very specific condition. Read More »

Visiting the set of Zack Sndyer‘s Justice League, we were told that we would not be interviewing any of the film’s cast. And especially not Ben Affleck, whom I’ve heard typically doesn’t do press while he’s filming a movie. We were watching them film a scene that features Commissioner Gordon meeting with a few members of the Justice League (read about that scene here). As production wrapped for the day, the costume department removed his bat cowl, leaving him with a damp head and eyes ringed with black eyeshadow. On his way to his dressing room, Affleck stopped to say hello to us.
Christian [Bale] never let reporters see him with the raccoon eyes, proving that Christian is a much smarter man than I am.

While Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice garnered mixed reactions overall, to put it gently, Ben Affleck‘s Batman was a hit with fans and critics alike. It’s no surprise that DC is planning a solo outing for the character, or that it’s already one of the most highly anticipated projects on the DC Extended Universe slate. (Never mind that it doesn’t even have a release date at this point.)
As of right now, however, we don’t know a whole lot about what the film’s actually going to be. And if you were hoping a look into the comics canon might provide some answers, think again. In a recent interview, Affleck revealed that the Batman solo movie will probably be an “original story,” rather than a direct adaptation of a familiar storyline. Read Affleck’s comments on the Batman story below. Read More »
Director Gavin O’Connor (Warrior) last boarded a moving train with Jane Got a Gun, a project that was plagued with problems before he arrived on set. The Western quickly disappeared from theaters this year, but it’s hard to blame O’Connor, who typically delivers quality dramas. The director’s new film, The Accountant, opens in theaters later this year. The thriller stars Ben Affleck, Anna Kendrick, J.K. Simmons, Jon Bernthal, Jean Smart, Jeffrey Tambor, and John Lithgow.
Watch The Accountant trailer below.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
As the newest big-screen iteration of Batman, Ben Affleck already plays a key role in Warner Bros.’ DC Extended Universe. Affleck’s Dark Knight made his debut in this spring’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and will be back onscreen for this summer’s Suicide Squad, and then he’ll get his own solo movie in the not-too-distant future with Affleck himself behind the camera.
And as if all that weren’t enough, Affleck is now digging even deeper into the future of the franchise. The two-time Oscar winner has signed on to executive produce the upcoming Justice League movie, which he’s already starring in for director Zack Snyder. Read More »
The DC Comics film universe seems to be pretty shaky right now, with The Flash director Seth Grahame-Smith departing and Aquaman director James Wan rumored to potentially leave as well. This all seems to stem from Warner Bros. becoming more hands-on with the DC Comics films after Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice didn’t live up to their expectations on a number of levels. But the one DC Comics movie that seems like a sure thing for the studio is Ben Affleck‘s solo Batman movie.
CinemaCon brought confirmation that Ben Affleck would star in and possibly direct the film that he is collaborating on with producer Geoff Johns. As of now, we don’t know when the film will hit theaters, but with Ben Affleck’s grizzled version of The Dark Knight being one of the best things to come out of Batman v Superman, fans are very excited to see what the Argo director will do with the superhero.
Now a new rumor gives a few details about what Affleck and Johns have in store, and it involves bringing a bunch of iconic Batman villains into the mix. Find out more about the Ben Affleck Batman movie villain roster after the jump. Read More »
