Affleck To Direct The Town

After the very impressive Gone Baby Gone, Ben Affleck is back in the directing chair for the big screen adaptation of the Chuck Hogan novel The Prince of Thieves. Variety reports that Ben will rewrite, direct and star in flick under the working name of "The Town", for Warner Bros.

Prince Of Thieves is the story of a branch manager who survives a bank robbery that nearly ends in disaster only to fall for a man who, unbeknownst to her, is a criminal mastermind.
