Ben Affleck And Matt Damon Reunite For Mobster Movie


Matt Damon and Ben Affleck are teaming up once again, and not just in our dreams where we revert to our inner boy-crazy eighth graders. Reuniting for their first joint venture since Good Will Hunting, Affleck and Damon will partner up for a biopic of recently captured crime boss Whitey Bulger. The two will direct and star, respectively. “Matt and I have been looking for something to do together for some time. We’ve heard about Whitey Bulger since we were kids, and we are excited by the prospect of putting it on screen,” Affleck said, according to Deadline. Based on our Matt Damon And Ben Affleck: BFFs Forever time line, these two were due for a new project to further their fourteen-year professional history together. On top of that, squee!
