Posted Thursday May 1, 2014 11:58 AM GMT

Back in 2001 and 2003, they executive produced a documentary series for HBO called “Project Greenlight” and now Ben Affleck and Matt Damon are ramping things up for another season of greatness.

The “Argo” hunk told press, "'Project Greenlight' was ahead of its time. Now that technology has caught up to the concept, we thought it was a perfect time to bring it back.”

“A whole new generation of filmmakers has grown up sharing everything, and the next big director could be just an upload away,” he added.

Damon agreed, "'Project Greenlight' works -- careers have been launched and sustained as a direct result of this contest. Pete Jones, John Gulager, Patrick Melton and Marcus Dunstan are just a few of the PGL alums who've gone on to do great things in Hollywood, and Ben and I are really proud of that."
