Filming Begins On Affleck’s “Live By Night”

Playing Batman has kept Ben Affleck busy lately, but the Oscar-winning “Argo” director is returning to the big chair to direct a Dennis Lehane adaptation before he slips on Bruce Wayne’s after hours rubber suit in the “Justice League” films.

That adaptation is the crime thriller “Live By Night” in which Affleck will also star and shooting on the project kicked off today, which has resulted in the first photo from the film’s set going online on social media. The project marks the second Lehane adaptation for Affleck following his first film “Gone Baby Gone”.

Sienna Miller, Chris Cooper, Zoe Saldana, Chris Messina and Elle Fanning also star in ‘Night’ which is currently targeting a 2017 release date.
