Ben Affleck to Direct Tell No One


When he's not holding his actors hostage for his next directorial effort, Argo, Ben Affleck is thinking a few films ahead. Deadline reports that Affleck has attached himself to direct an adaptation of Harlan Coben's novel Tell No One, about a doctor whose wife mysteriously goes missing. If it all sounds familiar, that's because the French got to it first: Actor-director Guillaume Canet adapted Coben's book into an acclaimed foreign-language thriller back in 2006. (So really, a lot of people have already been told — just not in English.) [Deadline]
