This is one impressive cast.
Ben Affleck has his next directorial effort lined up, and it could be a doozy. LIVE BY NIGHT is the second novel Affleck has adapted from Dennis Lehane; the first was Affleck’s debut GONE BABY GONE in 2007.
Affleck as a director hasn’t had a miss yet. The last time he went behind the camera, he won an Oscar for ARGO. With the help of (deep breath) Sienna Miller, Chris Messina, Elle Fanning, Brendan Gleeson, Chris Cooper, this could be something special.
LIVE BY NIGHT is a period drama, set in the 1920’s, and revolves around the son of a Boston police officer who moves to Florida and becomes a bootlegger.
We’ve got some time to wait. (Affleck needs it to get out of that suit.) LIVE BY NIGHT comes out October 20, 2017.
