Will Leitch Returns to Deadspin

Will Leitch, the founding editor of Deadspin, has announced a return of sorts. On his personal blog, Leitch reported that the Yahoo! blog “The Projector” which he used to write for will be reinstalled as a regular feature on Deadspin. The Projector — a film review spot for Leitch and Tim Grierson — was shuttered by Yahoo! late last year.

Leitch and Grierson will be writing about five posts a week for Deadspin and sometimes Gawker:

We’re very excited about this and do hope people enjoy it.
