Ben Affleck and Matt Damon haven’t done anything new together since 1997’s, “Good Will Hunting”, in which they both won an Oscar for, “Best Screenplay”. The two best friends will finally get together again for the big screen. They will take on the story of Whitey Bulger, the notorious mob boss from Boston, who was just captured in California, earlier this year.
The script will be written by “Boardwalk Empire”, creator and writer, Terrence Winter. Ben Affleck will direct and co-star as Whitey Bulger. Matt Damon will have a role as well. Warner Bros. also asked Ben if he’ll direct a new version of Stephen King’s “The Stand” but Ben has not yet responded if he will or not. I have a feeling that Ben will not direct, “The Stand” due to agreeing with the Whitey Bulger project instead.
Very nice! I really enjoyed that movie, “The Town”. I’m not much of a Ben Affleck fan either, but “The Town” was awesome. I think that was his best movie in a long time. I’m sure Ben will make the Whitey Bulger movie violent and action packed as well.
Ben and Matt’s been best friends for years, they grew up together. Nice to see them do something again, finally.
