Matt Damon says Weinstein likes Feast, but Project Greenlight is “on a respirator”

Project Greenlight 3 may have had strong reviews and produced a film that people might actually see, but its low ratings mean Bravo doesn’t want to bring it back. Matt Damon tells Zap2it.com that Bravo execs told him, “‘Look, this number, no matter what, we can’t bring the show back… This is just terrible, we can’t justify keeping it on air.'”

However, he says that, ultimately, “It’s up in the air right now. I suspect if the movie does well enough, maybe Bob would help with it, maybe there’s some way to get them all to do it one more time, but it’s on a respirator.”

“Bob” is Dimension’s Bob Weinstein, who is enthusiastic about the film. Damon, doing an impression of Weinstein, says, “‘I released this movie ‘The Darkness’ last year at Christmas. It’s the worst movie I’ve ever seen in my life, this fucking ‘Darkness,’ but it’s a great slot. ‘The Darkness’ made 22 million. So I’m putting ‘Feast’ in the ‘Darkness’ slot. Fucking ‘Feast’ is ‘Citizen Kane’ compared to ‘The Darkness.'”

Officially, Feast will be released Jan. 20, but it could be bumped a month earlier to Christmas.
