McClane's retired, he's not a cop anymore. It's completely different from the other three films.

Christopher Nolan's directive was clear to everyone in the cast and crew: Use CGI only as a last resort.

Affleck Signs Up for Debut as Film Director

He hit it big as a screenwriter, rose and fell as an actor, and even dabbled in presidential politics, and now Ben Affleck is trying his hand in the director's chair.

The actor who won an Oscar for co-writing 1997's "Good Will Hunting" with his buddy Matt Damon , has signed up to direct a movie titled "Gone, Baby, Gone," for The Walt Disney Co.'s Touchstone Pictures, a Disney spokeswoman said on Tuesday.

The film is adapted from writer Dennis Lehane's novel of the same name. Lehane also wrote "Mystic River," which was turned into an Oscar-nominated movie in 2003 by actor/director Clint Eastwood .

The novel "Gone, Baby, Gone," tells of two working class private detectives in Boston, Patrick Kenzie and Angela Gennaro, who are hired to search from a missing child.

The film version is expected to begin shooting this fall in Boston.

Affleck could be a good director.
Let's go to a motel. We don't have to do anything -- we could just swim.

He's done knocked up Garner now.

Kid confirmed to already be developing cleft in chin.
Yes, to dance beneath the diamond sky with one hand waving free, silhouetted by the sea, circled by the circus sands, with all memory and fate driven deep beneath the waves, let me forget about today until tomorrow.

Ben Affleck, Jennifer Garner wed, expecting baby

Hollywood couple Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner, who battled each other on screen in the action film "Daredevil," have married and are expecting their first child, their publicists said on Thursday.

No further details were provided, but Us Weekly magazine reported that the couple tied the knot on Wednesday at the Parot Cay resort in the Turks and Caicos Islands, the British colony southeast of the Bahamas, and that their baby is due this fall.

Affleck, 32, celebrated his last days as a single man with a bachelor party on Friday while Garner, 33, finished shooting her upcoming movie, "Catch and Release," in Vancouver, the magazine said.
 
Among the guests at the wedding, according to Us Weekly, was actor Victor Garber, who is Garner's co-star on the ABC television drama "Alias."

Affleck and Garner first worked together on the 2001 film "Pearl Harbor" and co-starred in the 2003 film based on the Marvel comics superhero "Daredevil," leading to Garner's big-screen spinoff role in this year's "Elektra."

The couple were widely reported to have begun dating last year, months after Affleck and former girlfriend Jennifer Lopez called off their highly publicized engagement.

By contrast, Affleck and Garner have maintained a low profile as a couple. Their representatives had steadfastly refused to acknowledge reports that they had become engaged or were expecting a baby.

Garner filed for divorce from her first husband, actor Scott Foley, in 2003, after 2-1/2 years of marriage.

Affleck, Damon Together Again

After all these years together, Ben Affleck and Matt Damon are finally making it legal.

The Oscar-winning Boston buddies will reunite onscreen in an untitled drama inspired by two real-life attorneys, who fight a 15-year battle to free an innocent man on death row, Daily Variety reports.

Save a couple of cameos in Kevin Smith's Dogma and Jersey Girls, the twosome hasn't headlined a movie together since 1997's Good Will Hunting, for which they shared the Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay.

Affleck will play Michael Banks and Damon, J. Gordon Cooney, two lawyers at a Philadelphia firm who work pro bono on the appeal of John Thompson, who claims he was wrongfully convicted of murder and sentenced to death. The attorneys manages to win nine stays of execution over the next decade and a half and eventually overturn the conviction and have Thompson cleared of all charges.

The film, which will be distributed by Disney's Touchstone Pictures division, is being produced by Affleck and Damon's Live Planet shingle. Chris Murphey has been tapped to write the script. As part of the movie deal, the companies acquired the life-story rights to the attorneys and Thompson for an unspecified sum.

Live Planet is the multimedia outfit that hatched Damon and Affleck's now-scotched reality series Project Greenlight. It's also developing for Miramax Gone Baby Gone, the story of two Beantown private detectives investigating a girl's kidnapping. The film is based on a novel by Dennis Lehane and is expected to mark Affleck's feature directing debut.

That project is scheduled to start shooting this summer in Boston. No word when Affleck and Damon will roll cameras on the death row story.

Besides Gone, Affleck has three more movies in the pipeline: playing an assassin in Joe Carnahan's Las Vegas crime comedy Smoking Aces, going up, up and away as original Superman actor George Reeves in the mystery Hollywoodland, and appearing in Smith's highly anticipated sequel Clerks II.

Damon, who's currently in theaters in Syrnana, has been in the Dominican Republic shooting Robert De Niro's CIA film The Good Shepherd, costarring De Niro and Angelina Jolie. This December he stars with Leonardo DiCaprio and Jack Nicholson in Martin Scorsese's crime drama The Departed. He's also signed on to reprise his role as Jason Bourne for The Bourne Ultimatum and is likely to be in the cast of Ocean's 13, if the sequel gets off the drawing board.

With news of their legal drama circulating, Damon and Affleck can finally put aside the rumors spread by OK! magazine that the actors were ready to take over the roles immortalized by Paul Newman and Robert Redford in 1969's Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid.

"There's no truth, never was," Affleck's rep, Ken Sunshine, tells E! Online. "Never any thought about Butch Cassidy, never any meetings about it. It's just not true."

Ben & Matt’s Next Movie
Source: Us Weekly

Oscar alert! Nearly 10 years after Ben Affleck, 34, and Matt Damon, 36, snagged Hollywood’s highest honor for cowriting Good Will Hunting, the wonder boys are working together on a new screenplay, an insider tells Us Weekly.

“They’re really excited about it,” says the source.

The childhood pals wrote GWH during the early ’90s.

And what a difference a decade makes!

Then, the struggling actors shared an apartment in Cambridge, Massachusetts.

Now the screen idols have spent two weeks getting their creative juices flowing in a $13,000-a-week house in Kauai, Hawaii.

“Ben and Matt keep taking breaks to go surfing and hang out with their families,” adds the source. “But for the most part, they’ve been writing together on this trip.”
