We'd say that third time's a charm, but Ben Affleck's frist two movies were AWESOME!!
It's star packed, and sounds absolutely nuts (in a good way):
In a quick summary of the synopsis, the film is about six US hostages that have escaped the grasp of their Iranian hostage takers during the famous 1979 crisis. They make their way to the home of a Canadian ambassador, but require an extreme plan to make it out of the country. Enter a preposterous, movie production scheme and some guts of steel, and you have one of the wildest stories in recent covert history (or, so we know).
In addition to directing, Affleck will star in the film, which will also include "Breaking Bad" Emmy winner Bryan Cranston, John Goodman — he of frightening "Community" guest arc this season — and Alan Arkin, perhaps the funniest film grandfather of the past ten years.
We can't wait to see it, but we're a sucker for Affleck's flicks. Plus he looked super seksi in The Town (that stubble!)!
Hope all goes well, Ben!
