Even before he won his Oscar for Best Picture for "Argo," Ben Affleck wasn't lacking in possible directorial vehicles. Dennis Lehane adaptation "Live By Night," a Whitey Bulger biopic (that he told us is one more movie away), a remake of Guillaume Canet's "Tell No One," Stephen King adaptation "The Stand," Yankees flick "The Trade" and more (we go into great detail right here) have all been percolating, but you can bet even more material will be crossing his desk now that Oscar is his paperweight.

Next fall brings his Tom Hanks-starring hostage drama "Captain Phillips" to the big screen, and just a couple of weeks ago it was reported that his Martin Luther King Jr. film is back on, with the wheels turning to make it his next effort. And now, he's got another movie percolating.
