No confirmation yet but it seems like Ben Affleck is attached to star in a Warner Bros. vehicle originally blocked off for ANOTHER mega star!
The film is called Nathan Decker, a political comedy that center on a politician who is caught in an affair and returns to his hometown to confront his past. Hmmm…
Tom Cruise was originally supposed to star in the film written by Dan Fogelman who wrote Crazy, Beautiful, Love. Cruise however fell off from the project. (Not literally, of course … but no reason was given as to why.)
The director/actor/writer will not direct the film, however.
Damn! That's a shame since we just adored The Town!!!
Reports also indicate that Affleck won't agree to star unless there's a rewrite to enhance his character's presence in the film.
Fair enough, Affleck! Fair enough…
