Having just finished a rather public trip to rehab, actor and filmmaker Ben Affleck is not shying away from the issue with TMZ reporting he is back at work on the addiction drama “Torrance”.
Affleck produces and stars as a former all-star basketball player who loses his career as well as his wife due to his addiction. In an attempt to get his life back he looks for redemption as the coach of the high school basketball team.
Affleck’s addiction struggles were publicly known long before his rehab visit and the project was active before he went in. Gavin O’Connor, who worked with Affleck on “The Accountant,” helms the film which only recently began shooting and has yet to set a release date.
