Ben Affleck has firmly asserted himself as a multi-talented player in the entertainment industry. He won an Academy Award for his writing credits on "Good Will Hunting" in 1997, has starred in countless films and has now gained the respect behind the lens as well, winning an Academy Award for Best Picture earlier this year for "Argo".

Prepping for his next directorial feature "Live by Night", Affleck is going to try his hand at acting with another director at the helm again. David Fincher is adapting Gillian Flynn's best-selling novel "Gone Girl" and Affleck is now officially in talks to star. Fincher's last film was a remake of the Swedish sensation "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" in 2011. His next project was poised to be Disney's "20,000 Leagues Under the Sea", but that production was pushed to 2014 in order to secure Fincher's ideal cast.

The book centers around a man, whose wife disappears on their fifth wedding anniversary. Clues and suspicion indicate that the man is the woman's killer.

Reese Witherspoon is attached to the project as a producer but is not expected to star in the film. Female leads being tossed in the mix to star include Natalie Portman, Emily Blunt and Charlize Theron.

Do you think Affleck and Fincher would make a good collaboration? Let us know in the comments section below!

    I see one that's great enough to stand on his own in a flick and I see two generic Super Heroes below him played by descent actors that will suck of no fault of their own. DC Entertainment and Zack piss off Snyder have destroyed any chance of a good Superman flick. It's generic and badly delivered to screen. What a tragedy to finally get to see the big 3 on screen after all these years only to watch them in piss poor dark generic looking outfits and rewritten backgrounds. FAILURE! DC Entertainment needs to pull their heads out of their asses and give us something good besides Dark Knight and Batman. To my point GO MARVEL!!!!!! May we all be laughing at DC Comics in the end for playing this awful prank on the true fans.

    Marvel has nothing to worry about. DC Entertainment has already killed Superman in this so called "Man of Steel" series of movies. Does anyone recall how the first one sucked? That movie in no way other then title had the tone of Superman. DC has shot themselves in the foot far before the release date against Marvel that knows how to build on charactors, respect them, and the fans. Before all this bull crap with revamping I was 100% behind DC Comics. They have proved one bad film over another that Batman is the only one in the JLA they can get right. This knockoff Superman is and was terrible! Wonder Woman will be just as bad or worse being that DC Comics likes to screw around with her origin and costume the most out of any DC charactor since creation. They simply just don't know what the heck they are doing or how to stay true to the roots of these heroes who have endured for 70 plus years. MOS2 may make it at the box office but mark my words it will not in any way be because it's a great flick. Just the hopefuls having to justify to themselves right and wrongs of the contents. It will suck! Line up for Captain America 3 and catch this flick in the red box.

    I've got a Baby Ruth in my coat pocket somewhere... just waiting to eat it. Maybe I'll put in a blender on puree.
