Ben Affleck Circling Line of Sight as Director and Star

Ben Affleck is loving this directing thing as the Oscar winner is currently doing just that as well as starring in the thriller Argo. Now word has emerged that the star is considering doing the same thing with the film Line of Sight.

Argo, the Iranian hostage drama that tells the true story of six diplomats rescued in 1979, is in the midst of shooting. Meanwhile, Affleck’s agents are busy working on his next deal which most likely will be Warner Bros’ Line of Sight.

Line of Sight is from producers Joel Silver and Andrew Rona and follows “an elite commando squad transporting cargo while dealing with a global threat. One of the conceits of the movie is that it tells the tale from a point-of-view akin to a first-person shooter game,” according to a studio statement.

After Affleck’s work on The Town, we trust him to bring a fierce edge to the story.

The photo shows Bridesmaids star Chris O’Dowd, Fox and Segel taking a dip in what we can easily assume will be one funny flick.

Segel’s character was a friend of Seth Rogen’s in the original Knocked Up, that also co-starred Katherine Heigl. Paul Rudd and Leslie Mann are back from the original, and Movie Fanatic understands the couple are central to the plot of the film that Apatow is calling a companion piece to his 2007 smash.

Another Bridesmaids alum, recent Emmy nominee Melissa McCarthy, is also in the cast as is Ryan Lee, Lena Dunham, Albert Brooks and Wyatt Russell.
