SPOILER ALERT: Good Will Hunting Remake Twist Planned: Harvard Student Secretly Incredible At Being A Janitor
Man, Ben Affleck and Matt Damon hit the jackpot. They were a couple good time fellas in Boston that had a great idea for a flick – got a director, Robin Williams, made the flick – Oscar, fame, A list, hot wives….the American dream!
That bridge has allowed friends/family to succeed as well – great example, Casey Affleck now a celebrated actor in his own right. That’s why it was no surprise when Ben’s cousin, Gus Affleck, announced a new screenplay at the Sundance Film Festival this year – and it’s expected to fetch top dollar.
Same premise – totally different angle. Imagine the hijinks that can occur. A sophomore at Harvard has worked hard his whole life, he’s got a penchant for mathematics…but he’s got something to hide! Unbeknownst to anyone, even his closest friends, he is secretly an incredible janitor! While living this double life, he falls for the head custodian (ironically played by the adorably British Minnie Driver). Things get extra tense when the lead is working some logarithms on the chalkboard and sees some students putting graffiti on some lockers – what will he do!?!
