Project Greenlight 3 script contest losers get options from Affleck and Craven.
Project Greenlight 3 is following the creation of a film called “Feast,” but that script wasn’t the favorite of two of the series’ creators, Ben Affleck and Matt Damon. While Dimension insisted on producing “Feast” for the series, the other two script contest finalists now have a chance to see their films made. Affleck and Neo Art & Logic’s Joel Soisson and Mike Leahy have optioned Rick Carr’s “Does Anybody Here Remember When Hanz Gubenstein Invented Time Travel?” And Marshal Moseley’s “Wildcard,” the other script finalist, was also optioned, but by Wes Craven via his Craven/Maddalena Films.
