There were highs (Bourne), there were lows (Jersey Girl), then there was that unfortunate period where their love lives got between them...
...but now the dynamic duo of Matt Damon and Ben Affleck are back for the first time! They're in negotiating a first-look production deal with Warner Brothers. This could be good for may reasons: Affleck will have more weight when it comes to getting projects up and running (for him to direct, which he's proven to be good at), Damon has worked with some of the best filmmakers around (Scorsese, Greengrass, Soderbergh) so he'll be like a talent magnet for projects, and the pair may get around to writing a second script like they've been meaning to do sine Good Will Hunting nabbed them an Academy Award.
Variety fill in the details:
The thesps -- who haven't yet named their new banner -- previously partnered as producers at Disney-based LivePlanet along with Chris Moore and Sean Bailey, who's now prexy of production for Walt Disney Studios. While at LivePlanet, Affleck, Damon and Moore produced the documentary series "Project Greenlight."
Affleck and Damon first partnered as writers and actors 1997's "Good Will Hunting," winning the Oscar for original screenplay.
Both actors have worked at Warner Bros. recently, with Affleck directing and acting in the actioner "The Town" while Damon starred in "The Informant," "Invictus" and "Hereafter." Damon's nominated in Oscar's supporting actor category for "Invictus."
