NEW YORK, NEW YORK (August 8, 2006) - Dimension Films is proud to announce that "Feast," the highly anticipated horror movie whose inception and production was made possible and documented by the third season of the hit show "Project Greenlight" on the Bravo network, will hit theatres nationwide for special late night showings beginning on September 22 and 23, 2006. The special run will be followed by the DVD launch of "Feast" on October 17, 2006.

Directed by �Project Greenlight� winner and first time filmmaker John Gulager, "Feast" is the terrifying tale of a motley crew of strangers who find themselves trapped in an isolated tavern and must band together in a battle for survival against a family of flesh-hungry creatures. The ensemble cast includes Balthazar Getty ("Alias"), Henry Rollins (IFC�s �The Henry Rollins Show�), Navi Rawat ("The O.C.," "Numb3rs"), Josh Zuckerman (�Surviving Christmas�), Judah Friedlander (MTV2's hit show "Wonder Showzen"), Jason Mewes (�Clerks II�), Jenny Wade (�Rumor Has It�) and Krista Allen (HBO's "Unscripted").

�Feast� will make its world premiere on September 12, 2006 at the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas.

�We are thrilled to be able to bring this film � an incredible accomplishment for a first time filmmaker � to audiences everywhere ,� stated Bob Weinstein, Co-Chairman of The Weinstein Company and founder of Dimension Films, which backed the production of FEAST.

John Gulager, the contest winner who was tapped to direct his first feature film for Project Greenlight said, �This is a dream come true � making a movie. And then it�s a movie like FEAST! Monsters, chicks, explosions, blood, a studio film, a real budget...I mean...come on! It�s a really fun film that will surprise a lot of people and shock some.�

�We are proud to be part of a process that discovers, develops and provides opportunity for talented writers and filmmakers to work alongside entertainment luminaries like Wes Craven and have the opportunity to share their vision with audiences. �Project Greenlight� continues to leverage the power of various media platforms to discover new talent as well as create a community that has a vested interest in seeing the final results,� stated Larry Tanz, CEO LivePlanet.

�We are thrilled to have FEAST open theatrically� noted Maloof Motion Pictures Chairman/CEO Phil Maloof. �After a successful run on the festival circuit, FEAST has become a highly anticipated project amongst fans of the horror genre and we look forward to having it seen by moviegoers across the country.�

�Feast� was written by �Project Greenlight� winners Marcus Dunstan and Patrick Melton, and was produced by Michael Leahy and Joel Soisson, and Larry Tanz, Marc Joubert and Andrew Jameson, executive produced by Ben Affleck, Matt Damon, Chris Moore, Wes Craven, Gavin Maloof, Joe Maloof, Phil Maloof, George Maloof, Adrienne Maloof and Colleen Maloof.

ABOUT PROJECT GREENLIGHT - SEASON 3

Much like the second contest, PGL 3 sought both a screenwriter and a director through two concurrent contests. The writers submitted a feature length screenplay online. The screenplay contestants were narrowed to a Top 1000 based on the results of an online peer review round. The scripts were then read offline by third-party reviewers hired by Project Greenlight and narrowed to a Top 100. The Top 100 were read and rated by the Review Panel which included Ben Affleck, Matt Damon, Chris Moore and Wes Craven. The Top 5 were then named, given extensive script notes from the Panel and asked to revise their screenplays based on these notes. The scripts were re-read by the panel members and the Top 3 Finalists were named and flown to out to Hollywood for two days of meetings with the Director Finalists and the Review Panel.

The directors were asked to send in a three-minute scene of their choosing. The scenes were reviewed by third-party viewers hired by Project Greenlight. The Top 250 were named and asked to submit a 3-minute bio video. The field was then narrowed to the Top 50 directors and their scene submissions and bio videos were reviewed by the Review Panel. At this point we were down to the The Top 10 Directors. Each Top 10 Director was given an identical scene assignment which challenged the contestants to be creative, while still following all the assignment parameters. At last we arrived at our Top 3 Director Finalists who were then flown out to Hollywood for meetings with the Screenplay Contest Finalists and the Review Panel.
