Ben Affleck to direct Agatha Christie’s short story
Actor Ben Affleck, who was last seen in a cameo role in Suicide Squad, is all set to direct and star in Witness For The Prosecution, which is an adaptation of Agatha Christie’s short story about a lawyer defending an accused murderer.
According to reports, Affleck will also be co-producing the film alongside Matt Damon, Jennifer Todd and the Agatha Christie estate.
Damon and Affleck shot to fame with their 1997 film Good Will Hunting and while they are keen to write another script together, the Jason Bourne actor shared that their busy lives get in the way.
Speaking about Ben Affleck, Matt Damon said, ‘I would love to write another script with Ben; I love Ben, I love his work, he’s been my buddy for 35 years. The big issue is time for us. We have a company together so we work on a lot of projects together, but to try to carve out the time is really tough.’
‘I mean we both have a whole mess of kids now, and these other day jobs. He’s directing all the time and I’m off working with these other directors. The thing about Good Will Hunting is that we were unemployed and we weren’t writing the script on a deadline either.’
