Ben Affleck is in talks to write, direct and star in an adaptation of Dennis Lehane’s latest novel "Live by Night" at Pearl Street and Appian Way says The Hollywood Reporter.
The Boston-set Prohibition-era story centers on Joe Coughlin, a man who rebels against his cop father and becomes a career criminal. He soon rises up the mob's ranks as the action moves to Florida and then Cuba.
The story also includes rumrunners, femme fatales, betrayals and plenty of sin. It's unclear whether this will be Affleck’s next movie.
