A Replay For Ben Affleck
According to a story on Deadline, Ben Affleck is considering an adaptation of Ken Grimwood's novel Replay as his next project. It's the story of a man who relives his life over and over, in steadily decreasing increments, and is a book I loved, so I'm stocked at the possibilities. I know it's fashionable to hate on Affleck*, but I've always found him a more-than-competent actor, and with Gone, Baby, Gone and The Town, an excellent director. Fingers crossed.
* I thought Affleck was the best of the three Jack Ryans, for his performance in The Sum Of All Fears. Yes , I know I'm in the minority. Liev Schrieber killed in that movie, too.
