Film producer 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 Hollywood's popular friends duo 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 Ben and Matt's production company, revealed that she doubts if the two Oscar-winning atcors would be ready to host the entire event, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
"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. 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," she said.

Ms Todd said she and her longtime friend Michael De Luca have a long list for the would-be hosts of 2017 Oscars.
"We just started thinking about it, obviously, as we hit the ground running. We have our fat list now as we're talking through ideas," she said.
