Jennifer Todd, who has been named as one of the producers for the 89th Academy Awards along with Michael De Luca, says she will try to bring actors Ben Affleck and Matt Damon together at the star-studded ceremony in a creative way.
The 47-year-old Memento producer, also the president of Affleck and Damon’s production company, however, said she doubts if the two Oscar-winners would be ready to host the entire event, reports hollywoodreporter.com.
“I just got a bunch of old shows and went back and looked at how young they were that year they won for Good Will Hunting,” she said.
“They’re really excited and supportive of me doing it, so I’m sure I’ll enlist them in some creative way or another. I doubt they’ll be hosting it, though,” Todd added.
Todd said she and her long time friend De Luca have a long list for the would-be hosts of Oscars 2017.
“We just starting thinking about it, obviously, as we hit the ground running. We have our fat list now as we’re talking through ideas.”
