Ben Affleck Signs New Disney Project!

Ben Affleck is piling up projects nonstop. The latter links him to Mickey Mouse’s House. And it is that the actor will direct a fantasy film of live action in Disney. Affleck is set for a big 2021: the next premiere of Zack Snyder’s ‘Justice League’ on HBO Max. In addition, the actor has a large number of roles in films that are currently in various stages of production: from ‘Deep Water’ to ‘The Last Duel’ or ‘Hypnotic’. In addition, he also plans to direct two films: the war drama ‘Ghost Army’ and an adaptation of Agatha Christie’s novel, ‘Witness for the Prosecution’.

According to a Deadline exclusive, the fellow director is also on hand to direct a live-action adaptation of the fantasy novel “Keeper of the Lost Cities.” The book is the first in a popular series by author Shannon Messenger . The plot follows Sophie Foster, a 12-year-old girl with telepathic powers who wants to discover the origin of all her abilities. Affleck has written the project with Kate Gritmon , whose previous credits include “Game of Thrones” and Russell Crowe’s film “The Next Three Days.” Anyway, he has another company job pending before the camera: he will appear in the Harry Houdini film that Disney is also preparing .

Without a doubt, the story of ‘Keeper of the Lost Cities’ will be a new genre for the filmmaker when it comes to getting behind the camera. To date, Affleck has found a comfort zone when directing dramas and / or thrillers: there they are ‘The Town’ or ‘Argo’, with which he won the Oscar for Best Picture. The last one was ‘Live at night’, released in 2016. The new version of Christie’s book is scheduled for 2023, so there is a lot left for us to see him develop this story with Disney. The same this is the starting point of a beautiful relationship with Disney. We will first see how (and when) this project is developed.
