Ben Affleck Is So Much “American Bulls**t”

Ben Affleck is looking at Eric Warren Singer’s “American Bulls**t” as his next directorial effort reports The Wrap.

Sony Pictures has the rights to The Black List script with the story described as “the true story of Abscam, the FBI’s 1980 undercover sting operation of Congress to root out corruption, which was the brainchild of the world’s greatest con man.”

Affleck is also said to be considering Dave Mandel’s 1970’s wife-swapping tale “The Trade” and an adaptation of Ken Grimwood’s novel “Replay” about a 43-year-old radio journalist who dies and awakens in his 18-year-old body. Both projects are set up at Warner Bros. Pictures.
