Ben Affleck Coming To TOWN

Multi-hyphenate Ben Affleck has picked his next directorial project, an adaption of the Chuck Hagen novel The Prince of Thieves, which will reach the screen as The Town. Affleck is also set to script and star in the film as a career thief who falls for the manager of a bank he is planning on robbing.

The film is set to be filmed in the Boston suburb of Charlestown, a town similar to the gritty Beantown neighborhoods where he filmed his directorial debut, last year’s Gone, Baby, Gone.

Affleck is currently shooting the Mike Judge comedy Extract.
