You’re Real Christmas ‘Feast’ is Bloody!

During an interview with Matt Damon to promote his upcoming film The Brothers Grimm, he talked a bit about how the next season of Project Greenlight was not looking too hot, but how it still might happen. But the real news is how confident he is in Feast (review) and how they’ve got new plans for a release that’s guaranteed to make it some serious dough. Read on for the interview. The horror film centers on a group of people locked in a bar who are forced to fight monsters…IGN writes:

“Feast is set for release in the unlikely December slot. “Bob’s gonna bring it out at Christmas and he was like, [imitating his accent] ‘I released this movie The Darkness last year at Christmas. It’s the worst movie I’ve ever seen in my life, this f****** Darkness, but it’s a great slot. The Darkness made 22 million. So I’m putting Feast in the Darkness slot.’ ‘F****** Feast is Citizen Kane compared to The Darkness. (Laughs) So in an odd way, maybe it’ll work out.”

IGN continues:

Besides the difficultly of the project within the show, Greenlight had a tough time convincing viewers to follow the show from HBO to Bravo. “Before, with HBO, because they promo the s*** out of what they run, they do so much great promotion that the show was always a big hit for their size viewership, even though they’re not in that many homes, compared to Bravo. I defy anyone in this room to tell me what channel Bravo is.”

“The show was really good this year and yet we had horrible, horrible ratings. When we were in conversation with Bravo, they were like, ‘Look, the show is good. We got the best reviews of any show on television,’ and they said, ‘But there’s a certain number,’ and they showed us the number and I’m not a TV guy, but they said, ‘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.’ So it looked like it was dead, but now we got nominated for an Emmy, so it might, if the show won the Emmy, maybe it would be enough juice…”

“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.”
