Ben Affleck Eyes American Bullshit

Ben Affleck is apparently seriously considering taking on a new directing project, titled American Bullshit. Written by Eric Warren Singer, American Bullshit is the true story of Abscam, "the FBI's 1980s undercover sting operation of Congress to root out corruption which was the brainchild of the world's greatest con man.” But if that doesn't work out, Affleck's also looking at The Trade, a film about the wife swap of seventies New York Yankees pitchers Fritz Peterson and Mike Kekich, and Replay, based on a Ken Grimwood novel about a radio journalist who dies and wakes up as his teenage self.
