Warner Bros. is in talks with Ben Affleck to direct and star in THE TOWN. Affleck will also look to rewrite the script.
The dark heist-romance revolves around a high-tension love triangle between a female bank manager, a longtime thief who stole more than her heart and an equally smitten FBI agent trying to bust the crook and his gang before they can pull another big job.
GK Films' Graham King will produce the film.
Most recently Affleck directed his first film GONE BABY GONE. He also won an Oscar for writing with friend & fellow actor Matt Damin for GOOD WILL HUNTING.
