Affleck joins Pitt

08.08.2005

The junior Affleck, Casey, has signed on to co-star with Brad Pitt in the upcoming Warner Bros. flick THE ASSASSINATION OF JESSE JAMES. In the film Pitt will play the legendary Jesse James not to be confused with the host of "Monster Garage" and current husband of Sandra Bullock or adult porn star Jesse Jane. Affleck will star as the so-called "coward" Robert Ford, a member of James' gang who became resentful of his leader and hatched a plan to kill him off. He was tormented by that decision though after shooting him in the back and instead of being hailed as The Man Who Killed Jesse James, he was branded a coward. The film will be directed by Andrew Dominik (CHOPPER) and written by Ron Hansen who will base the script off his own novel "The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford." Ridley and Tony Scott are producing along with Pitt and his Plan B production company. Filming on JESSE JAMES is expected to begin in Canada later this month. Pitt recently wrapped his part on BABEL for director Alejandro González Iñárritu. Affleck has LONESOME JIM with Liv Tyler on the way and he is currently working on LAST KISS with Zach Braff. He's also the object of my ire as we speak because he named his son Indiana, which I so totally did like three years before him. Now there's another Indy out there and it's an Affleck, which is really depressing...
