Ben Affleck, Hollywood’s Hottest Director, Set to Direct ‘Live by Night’
It appears Ben Affleck has set his new film. Coming off the success of Argo, Affleck will again star and direct his next film.
Based on the Dennis Lehane novel (of the same name), the story will presumably be about a corrupt cop that finds himself deep in the organized crime business. This will be Affleck’s second novel by Lehane – his first feature Gone Baby Gone was adapted from a mystery series. If history repeats itself, Live by Night will be another hit.
Production began today, but there is no word on other possible stars. A release date later this year is hoped, but if I had to guess, it’ll roll out next year during awards season.
Keep your ears peeled for more news.
