After Project Greenlight runs its course, Matt Damon and Ben Affleck have plans to continue making films for HBO. The two announced today that they are developing an HBO film called Thirst, which has been described as a series of multiple storylines set against the backdrop of a global water crisis.
Elliott Lester is attached to direct, and Charles Leavitt will write and co-executive produce this close-to-the-headlines project alongside Margaret Chernin, Josh Weinstock, Jennifer Todd, and Drew Vinton.
In a statement about the continuing collaboration with the Oscar-winning duo, HBO programming president Michael Lombardo has said, “We are extremely pleased to continue our collaboration with Matt and Ben. As two of today’s most gifted filmmakers, they are once again using their cinematic talents to bring awareness to this pressing global issue.”
