Ben Affleck And Matt Damon Explain Why They Didn’t Collaborate On Writing For Years And Why They Brought In A Third Partner For The Last Duel

Matt Damon: She’s the best writer in the world…

Ben Affleck: We wanted this to be good.

Damon: We hadn’t written in a really long time. I think mostly because the first time, when we wrote Good Will Hunting we really didn’t know what we were doing. And it took a really long time. And I think both of us probably thought we would never have that much time again. We were unemployed…

Affleck: Living together, not doing much. So we had a couple of years to make a bunch of mistakes.

Damon: No deadline.

Affleck: The goal was to get the work and then we started working and that was what we focused on. But we continued to collaborate and work together and show each other stuff. Then, this book came along, we found it… gave it to Matt, he gave it to me and we were both struck by this story of this incredible woman and what she did and her heroism. It just seemed so moving. Because a part of the story as conceived, trying to reveal the untold world of women that history didn’t record.
