From what we know, the film is about a romance between a professional conman and someone just learning the criminal art. Years later, they meet up again and a past relationship resurfaces into the picture.
Early plans suggested Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone as headlines for the film, but that no longer seems to be the case. If Ben Affleck agrees, Warner Bros. will still need to search for a new female lead.
Affleck’s latest work, Argo, sees him as both star and director. Argo hits theaters this Friday, October 12.
