We're Not In The Town, Anymore! Ben Affleck In Talks To Direct Iran Thriller

ben affleck in talks for iran thriller

Looks like Ben Affleck's directing job on The Town gave him some serious points with Warner Bros, cause they've got another project for him…a bigger one.

Affleck is currently in talks with WB to direct Argo, a political thriller set up by George Clooney and his producing partner, Grant Heslov.

The project is based on a Wired Magazine article, and it's about a "stranger-than-fiction CIA rescue operation during the occupation of the American embassy in Tehran in 1979, when six U.S. diplomats were held hostage."

As it happened, the CIA set up a plan where a fake "Hollywood film crew" would go on location in Iran…but really they'd be there to rescue captives from the country.

Sounds exciting to us! And given Affleck's track record with acting directing, we're thinking he could be a very solid choice for this project.

Are U intrigued by this project? Do U think Ben Affleck's directing skillz will do the story justice?
