Goodwill Hunting

1997 – In 2013, Ben Stiller was in studio and said he turned down the offer to direct Goodwill Hunting.  He never read the script, but passed on it because he was told these 2 unknown guys-kids at that point-were attached to it.

Harvey Weinstein was in studio in 2014, and he told the story of the meeting he went to about producing this script.  He said he had talked to Kevin Smith about how great the script was, and when they went into this meeting with all the studio executives all the executives agreed how great it was.  Then Harvey said he was curious as to why the blow job on page 60, how that fit in with the rest of the movie, and no one knew what he was talking about.  Turns out that Matt Damon and Ben Affleck wrote that part just to test to see if these idiots actually ever read any script at all.

Robin worries that Ben Affleck won’t be a good Batman.  She said he’s only good in things that he writes, like Goodwill Hunting and Argo.
