Ben Affleck Returns To Boston; Will Write, Direct & Star In Dennis Lehane Adaptation ‘Live By Night’


Bits: made official, with Affleck to write, direct and star in the adaptation of Dennis Lehane‘s “Live By Night.” Pre-production begins today on the story set during the Prohibition in Boston, centering on Joe Coughlin, the son of a cop who finds himself slipping into a life of organized crime. As he climbs the ladder of organized crime, he journeys from Tampa to Cuba, encounters various dames, lowlifes and more in tale of revenge and redemption. So basically, it sounds awesome.

Of course, the last time Affleck tackled Lehane, it was for “Gone Baby Gone,” and that was a crackerjack and we expect nothing less here. Production is aiming to start in the fall, so casting news is likely not too far away.
