Ben Affleck seems a skilled juggler -- besides his family life and occasional acting work, he's lining up more directing jobs to follow his excellent feature debut, GONE BABY GONE.

Affleck is going to his old home Miramax (no longer under Weinstein control) for a historical drama called ARIZONA. He'll keep that considerable jaw behind the camera for the story, about a reporter killed in 1976 while investigating organized crime ties to state government. His fellow journalists completed the investigation after his death.

Affleck is also planning to write, direct and star in the Beantown crime tale PRINCE OF THIEVES, and will show up on screen in Mike Judge's EXTRACT, the political drama-thriller STATE OF PLAY and the romcom HE'S JUST NOT THAT INTO YOU. Hopefully he also finds time to spend with his lovely wife, because someone should. Not that I'm volunteering, but... okay, fine, I am.

Extra Tidbit: After his informed appearances on Bill Maher's show, I half-expected Affleck to start pursuing a political career.

BA is not that bad an actor but yea he should stay behind the cam cause GBG was my fav the second it ended. if he can keep his style and not get carried away he'll be at the top of the directors list (not the very top haha)

Still haven't seen GBG, but if it's even halfway decent, then I'll be happy not seeing his ugly mug in front of cameras from now on.

Yeah, this guy definitely belongs behind the camera. Gone Baby Gone was freaking amazing.

Lookin' forward to anything this goof directs next. Who'd-a thunk Ben Assflex would direct one of my favorite movies of 2007.

i really hope

That affleck makes the full transition behind the camera. He showed his writing stuff on Good Will Hunting, he showed his directing stuff in GBG, and his new project sounds and looks good.

If he keeps this up he is sure to stay in the A list category.
