Ben Affleck and Matt Damon may plan to write more together after their upcoming film collaboration, The Last Duel.
Damon, 50, told Entertainment Tonight that writing the Ridley Scott-directed movie “was actually a lot of fun,” adding, “I think we'll be writing a lot more in the future just because it wasn't like that Time consuming, as we thought. "
The two friends won the 1997 Oscar for Best Original Screenplay for Good Will Hunting. The trailer for The Last Duel, which they co-wrote with Nicole Holofcener, debuted online on Tuesday.
Despite previously winning an Oscar, Damon said the process of writing Good Will Hunting was "so inefficient" compared to The Last Duel.
“You know, because we didn't really understand the structure, we wrote thousands of pages. ... We thought, 'Well what if that happens?' And then we just wrote other scenes, "Damon recalls." So we had all these different scenes and then we tried to put them together into what looked like a movie. "

The last duel is more about perspective, said Damon. “There are two knights and then Lady Marguerite. So Ben and I wrote the male perspective and Nicole Holofcener wrote the female perspective.
