News & Interviews

Matt Damon apologizes for Project Greenlight diversity comments - Entertainment Weekly - according to Ew

“I just would want to urge people, whoever this director is, the way they’re going to treat the character of Harmony,” she said. “Her being a prostitute, the only black person being a hooker who gets hit by her white pimp.”

And Project Greenlight is a worthwhile television show. Like any compelling narrative, it has clear characters with strong wants and a comprehensible environment with appropriate obstacles. Hm, maybe the folks who make the show could take a stab at making one of its movies.

In the first episode, a contest winner is selected to shoot what we are told is a broad romantic comedy called Not Another Pretty Woman. Quickly, this contest winner (the show actually didn’t make that big of a deal of keeping the identity of this person a secret but, hey, spoilers are spoilers) proves to be a peculiar type. They want to shoot on film; to punch up the aforementioned broad rom-com, they want to bring in the guy who wrote Boys Don’t Cry. On hearing this, a producer deadpans: “That great comedy … Boys Don’t Cry.”

Later, however, things get a little awkward. As the judges discuss who will be chosen to direct, Damon and Affleck announce their personal top four—all of whom are white and male. Brown, unsurprisingly, is pulling for Leo and Kristen, but Peter Farrelly says he can’t envision them directing the script.* “I would just urge people to think about whoever this director is, the way that they’re going to treat the character of Harmony, her being a prostitute,” Brown counters. “[She’s] the only black person, being a hooker who gets hit by her white pimp.” She cautions them to be conscious of who they pick to execute such a touchy script.
