Affleck is Gone
Ben Affleck could be playing the same character for the next couple of years. First, he's got THE SUM OF ALL FEARS coming out this summer with Paramount looking to make more than one film with Affleck as Jack Ryan. Then he's starring in DAREDEVIL and you know that has sequels written all over it. Now, he's attached to star in a movie with high franchise potential, GONE, BABY, GONE, based on the detective novel by Dennis Lehane. The book follows two Boston P.I.'s, one male and one female. Presumably, Affleck would be playing the male role and it's unknown whether he'll adopt his "Chuckie" Boston accent for this one. Lehane also has another novel getting the film treatment - his MYSTIC RIVER is next up for director Clint Eastwood. Affleck's CHANGING LANES opens April 19th and DAREDEVIL begins filming this spring in Los Angeles.
